« The Pepper Road »
Humans have been consuming pepper for at least 4,000 years and the spice has been a valuable commodity for almost as long. In the 15th century, Italians dominated the international trade in pepper, whose high cost made it much sought after and even fought over. After the Treaty of Tordesillas of 1494, Portugal won exclusive trading rights covering half the countries in the world where pepper was cultivated. In 1498, Vasco da Gama went to India – after circumnavigating Africa – in search of « Christians and spice ».
In 2016, Serge’n Pepper asked Erwann de Kerros, a world traveller and explorer of pepper-growing lands, to bring back from his voyages the fine comestibles which will delight lovers of Serge’n Pepper’s Pocket Pepper Pack.
