The Pepper Road: a name
for the many routes taken by traders who spread hot chili peppers from the Caribbean
Islands, Central and South America to the rest of the world. By sea and by land,
traders and explorers brought chili peppers (and seeds) wherever they went.
Within a few short decades after the Spanish found the New World, the Old World
cuisine would never be the same. In every land, chili lovers created new and
varied methods for preparing and preserving chili pepper sauces to easily add
to cooking, even when fresh peppers were no longer available.
Pepper Road will showcase Pepper Sauce varieties using
methods and ingredients unique to each region.
