Pepper

Ground Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper is particularly important to Cajun, Creole and Mexican cuisines as the chillies used for this ground spice are all native to Central and South America - specifically named after a city in French Guiana. Although there are numerous sources of cayenne pepper, India, Pakistan and China are the major producers.

The spice's musty flavour combines with floral, spicy and hay-like notes to give cayenne pepper its characteristic profile. This earthy, hot chilli powder is a natural partner for rich and sweet foods such as cheese, egg and corn, as just a pinch elevates the dish, giving it greater interest.

Cayenne pepper is most useful when heat needs to be added to a dish without a significant change in the flavour.
