Description
When a medieval or Renaissance recipe calls for pepper, it can mean any of a variety of peppers and pepper-like spices from the time. Come taste some of the “peppers” that would have been used in period: cubeb, long pepper, grains of paradise, guinea pepper, and black pepper. Decide which ones pair best with different foods. We’ll also discuss the best places to shop for and find period peppers.
