True connoisseurs already have all they need, and know best how to satisfy their own developed tastes, or so they think. People who really enjoy cooking, however, never tire of discovering new, rare spices or terroirs. And, with luck, you’ll even get to taste the fruits of their new discoveries! Our Grand Cru Pepper Trio brings together three exceptional black peppers, sure to please both staunch traditionalists and adventurous cooks alike. For those who are always on the hunt for rare, mysterious spices, we recommend our Japanese yuzu or even our Korean pepper threads. Stick to classic gifts like Lemon Herb Fleur de Sel or a ceramic salt cellar signed by Arik de Vienne, or even an 8-spice chai, fragranced with vanilla. West Indian bay leaf, is just as aromatic as its better-known cousin, Mediterranean bay leaf, and also presents surprising notes of citrus and clove. Of course, for us, it’s not really a holiday without a real spice blend: the fragrant Ethiopian Berbere and the traditional Ras-el-Hanout are sure to please anyone who’s excited by aromas both subtle and complex.
