From the region of Wudu we source this large, bright red flower pepper that is growing in popularity around China with its warm, earthy, lavender flavor that is perfect in the more hearty Sichuan dishes like Mapo Dofu or twice-cooked pork.

From the Gobi desert to the rolling green hills of Mongolia the landlocked province of Gansu was once an important strategic outpost that linked the Chinese empire with the northern Silk Road. Recently the southern part of Gansu that borders to Sichuan has started cultivating an incredible Sichuan pepper known as ”Da Hong Pao” directly translated as ”Big Red Robe”.

    Sichuanese food is out of this world. We think it is one of the most delicious and interesting cuisines on the globe. How can there be such an unbelievable complexity and depth of flavor. Flowery, salty, sweet, spicy, sour, umami, bitterness. Fermentations, pickles. Dried, fresh. Steamed, stir fried, dry fried, grilled, water soaked, dry braised, sauteed.

    Legends talk of over 6000 traditional dishes created from 23 fixed flavors and 58 different cooking methods. And at the core of it all, Ma La, the link up of hot and numbing, when chili marries Sichuan Pepper. When cooking with Sichuan Pepper it is about finding a symphony between all these flavors and cooking methods. Understand how they enhance each other. No other flavor should be at the expense of the other.

    The Sichuan peppers in your package are very potent, flowery taste bombs. They are considered some of the best in the world for a reason. It does takes some error and trial to get to know them, slowly discovering what harmony can arise with other tastes, but it is definitely worth the challenge as it will open a door to a whole new way of cooking. Roasting and toasting your pepper is a good idea before applying it to your dish.
