Cambodia in your cuIsine


Pure Kampot Pepper in America 

 
…ordinary pepper bears as much resemblance to Kampot pepper
as vin de table does to fine Bordeaux.

A culinary sensation

The Kampot pepper-found only in the Kampot region of Cambodia-was once the world's most prestigious peppercorn, integral to classic French cuisine and celebrated in gourmet kitchens everywhere for its complex aroma and mild, flavorful spice. However, during the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime of the 1970s, Kampot Pepper exports ceased. 

Over the last 10 years the Cambodian economy has been the 10th fastest growing economy in the world. Kampot Pepper is the leading sector in the development of Cambodia's agricultural economy. Recently it was designated a Protected Geographical Indication (similar to Champagne) by European authorities.

We are-and you can be-part of this effort to return Kampot Pepper to tabletops worldwide. We'll grow it and import it; you buy it and serve it! Your customers will find it unique and come back for more.

A Farm in our Family



Grown in Cambodia at a five-generation locally-owned farm.

As Cambodia’s renaissance continues – and designer salts vacate the culinary spotlight – the Kampot pepper readies for its second wave of fame.

The geography and agricultural methods are exactly the same – all that’s new is a Protected Geographical Indication defending the product’s exclusive origin.

The Marquis de Kampot family with its 9,000 vines is honored to herald its reappearance.

Internationally certified, Kampot Pepper is from the prime Cambodian pepper producing region.  The pepper from Marquis de Kampot is chemical-free and has organic certification in progress.  

Marquis de Kampot peppercorns are being produced by the ex-pat wing of the family and imported into the American market by the U.S. wing:

The peppercorns will be sterilized using the H2O Express Steam process.

 

The mineral-rich soil in Kampot produces sharp aromas and spicy tastes—when ground to a powder, it is used to add distinct flavor to meat and fish dishes.
