Berbere is an intriguing blend; I haven’t found anything else at once so hot and subtle. I think of Berbere as a spiced cayenne; that is, the base is chili (with a fair amount of pepper and ginger) and this is accented (or almost scented) with sweet, aromatic spices (like coriander, cardamom, and fenugreek). Like American Curry Powder or Chili Powder there is no set recipe. While, I was at Portland Spice, I had a customer who brought samples of several Berbere blends to share from a trip to...

I’ve been reading a lot about chili peppers recently in The Field Guide to Peppers by Dave DeWitt and Janie Lamson. One of the things I’ve found particularly interesting is how the chili came from the New World and enmeshed itself (so quickly) into cultures all around the world. And we can thank the Portuguese for that. So, with this in mind I started researching Vindaloo thinking it would be a great fit for my International Fire line; much to my surprise I learned that Vindaloo itself has...
