Tasting Notes from the Curator

Within the flesh of every Leyenda Extra Piquillo Pepper lies a storied palette of flavors, their essence singing of the sweet earth of the Ribera’s soil. Harvested by hand in the glow of the Spanish sun, these peppers possess a fleshiness that’s deeply satiating. The charred whispers from wood-fire roasting impart a nostalgic smokiness that dances gracefully with the peppers’ inherently sweet notes. An undercurrent of tanginess refreshes the palate, setting the stage for exquisite bites to come. These peppers, in their artisanal nobility, are the marriage of tradition and terroir—a gastronomic heirloom that gracefully carries the legacy of Navarre’s agricultural wisdom.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Appetizers: Blend Leyenda peppers with cream cheese for a sublime dip or stuff them with herbed goat cheese for an elevated hors d’oeuvre.
  • Mains: Incorporate into paellas or atop pizzas for a distinct sweet and smoky infusion.
  • Breakfast: A fine companion to scrambled eggs, offering a gentle tang with each forkful.
  • Complementary Beverages: Enjoy alongside a crisp, young white wine or a dry cider that mirrors the peppers’ own brightness.
