Earthy, slightly sweet, and mildly spicy - these chili flakes come from the bukovo, a rare chili pepper variety grown primarily in the Balkans. Daphnis and Chloe sources its chili flakes from a supplier in Northern Greece who smokes his peppers in the traditional fashion, using birchwood. The intentionally slow smoking process lasts several weeks and imparts a decidedly nuanced flavor profile that goes far beyond just "spicy" or "smoky".
Daphnis and Chloe is a Greek purveyor of culinary herb and spice company for chefs and home cooks who seek ingredients of the finest quality. Established in a small workshop near the Acropolis Hill in 2013, this Athens-based supplier draws its inspiration from the natural bounty of the Mediterranean and the rural traditions of the Greek peninsula.
