Daphnis and Chloe is a Greek culinary herb and spice company dedicated to chefs and home cooks who are looking for Mediterranean ingredients of the finest quality.
The municipality of Almopia in Northern Greece is one of the few producer areas of “Bukovo”, a Mediterranean spice made by a local variety of red horn peppers and named after the Slavic word for “spicy”. The remote Greek villages of Garefi and Ksifiani are praised producers of this Balcanic vegetable, used by the locals to make a smoked, sweet, and delicately spicy blend very popular in the surrounding cuisines but almost unknown elsewhere.
Our Daphnis and Chloe Chili Flakes come from an organic producer who smokes his peppers with birch wood, according to a traditional smoking process that lasts for weeks. For an unexplainable reason, our male customers are particularly fond of them.
Chili flakes can be used in the cooking or as a seasoning. Being only delicately spicy, they are great for giving a smoky effect to your favourite meals. Here at Daphnis and Chloe we love pairing them with thyme, oregano or fennel seeds.
Grown in Greece.
