Kampot peppercorns from Cambodia.

my coworker was booked to fly home to hang with his family Jan7. i already gave him cash to buy me his Countries best peppercorns. it is supposed to blow the Telliecherry peppercorn from India out of the water.

the Kampot Black Peppercorn. dang it!! Covid has gone too far!! Cambodia shut down travel from the States. well, you can go, but you will have to endure 14 day shut-in at a Gov facility. (hotel where the owner has some gov pull. meals are $10 per meal! hahhaha)

now i am shopping the internet.

anyone try the Kampot?

Never tried that variety, though a few years ago, I scored some heirloom peppercorns from Vietnam that were pretty tasty compared to Tellicherry or Malabar

Yours truly at the pepper plantation, and a close-up of some Kampot pepper growing.

Now all you'll need is some "Cat Poop" coffee and you'll be all set!

When I was lving in Beijing, my wifey and I decided to go see the great wall for the nTh time.. a beautiful crisp spring day..

She made me drive (I don't have a drivers license) in China... yet she has no problems driving in Beijing..

On our way to Muntianyu she grabs my arms says pull over back up, she saw a place she wanted to eat lunch at.. good call..

This is a salad of peppercorns before they are dried.. just some chilis, garlic and vinegar.. outstanding..



Might as well share the rest of the lunch..

Fried rose blossom



Some sort of corn fritter... like a pastele



grilled fish pulled from the pen in the stream behind the restaurant.




The kitchen, heat source, and supervisor

What's special about those peppercorns? I know nothing about cooking, only know how to eat.

We were in Xian and Szechuan as part of our tour last year, The smell of pepper or what ever that smell is from the hot chilies, it can be picked up with my not too sensitive nose a couple block away when they make those things in a big batch. I can only handle it for a few meals, after that, it becomes too much. Now, on a cool day like today, I love me some of that hot pots.

You should treat yourself to some, you can buy it on Amazon. I would describe it as more "floral" and sweeter than regular black pepper and with a much, much longer "burn." When you use it in a dish where pepper contributes to much of the overall flavor profile you can taste it in your mouth for many minutes after your last bite but in a good way.

Like, have you ever had fleur de sel? I would say Kampot pepper is to regular pepper what fleur de sel is to table salt. Ultimately it is something you have to try for yourself, reading about it will never do the stuff justice.

I am not wondering if that's the same feeling as the Xian hot pot or pepper? It does leave a lingering taste for some time.

There's a huge variety on Amazon including multiple colors. Do you have a specific brand that you can vouch for or anything that you can recommend.

Sorry, I assume that half of the stuff on Amazon is bogus/counterfeit, so unless I can verify/confirm that it's good stuff, I have a hard time trusting it.

Been meaning to get a new one... any recommendations that are cheap ... like me

And they have "Grains of Paradise" which I've read/heard about and wanted to try for some time!
