Smoked Chili Flakes (Bukovo)
The municipality of Almopia in northern Greece is one of the few areas that produce bukovo, a Balkan variety of red horn peppers named after the Slavic word for “spicy." Daphnis & Chloe’s producer smokes his peppers using birch wood that lasts for weeks.
Pleasantly smoky, sweet, mellow and with a lasting flavor, these pepper flakes form an ideal backbone for stews, soups and sauces. They are classically paired with pulses and sprinkled over baked Feta cheese. An ideal companion for avocado, broccoli, cauliflower and fresh coriander, but equally gratifying on a soft-boiled egg.
