Description

Sichuan pepper, also known as Sichuan peppercorn, hails from China's Sichuan region and is celebrated for its distinctive taste and aromas, earning a spot in Chef Philippe's selection.

What sets Sichuan pepper apart from other peppers is its unique flavour, which creates a tingling and mild numbing sensation in the mouth. This sensation is due to specific chemical compounds called polyphenols that stimulate the pain and temperature receptors. Beyond its numbing effect, Sichuan pepper offers complex aromas, including notes of lemon, citrus, pine, and flowers. This blend of flavors makes it a cherished ingredient in Asian cuisine, especially in Sichuan dishes.

Chef Philippe values Sichuan pepper for its exceptional qualities and often uses it to enhance meat, poultry, fish, and seafood dishes, as well as traditional sauces and marinades. It can also bring originality and complexity to desserts, particularly those featuring chocolate.

Sichuan pepper is available in various forms, including whole grains, ground, or as oil. Whole grains are often preferred as they release their full flavor when freshly ground before use.

In summary, Sichuan pepper is a fascinating spice with a unique flavour profile, part of Chef Philippe's selection. Its pungent taste and complex aromas make it a popular choice for adding boldness and character to dishes. To fully appreciate its flavors, grind it with a suitable pepper mill just before use.

To fully appreciate its flavours, we recommend that you grind it with a suitable pepper mill at the time of tasting.
