ISO Information on Pepper Corns

The pepper corns Iíve been getting from the supermarket have very little flavor. Can anyone recommend a brand of black pepper thatís like that rich pepper flavor you get in a good restaurant?

Absolutely buy your peppercorns from Penzey's. They have retail stores and a website.

Their peppercorns will make your head turn around like Linda Blair on the Excorcist. In a good way.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

For a couple years, I've used a Tellichery Pepper blend that's available from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Mostly Black, with some white, green, and red peppercorns as well. VERY good and aromatic. I'm currently using Cains bulk Black Peppercorns, but that's only because I can't justify the cost of driving 20+ miles, one-way, just for an $8US bottle of peppercorns.

Penzey's Sarawak and Tellicherry Extra Bold are both excellent!
