Peppercorns in Edmonton

inuksuk Jul 16, 2007 02:09 AM

As some of you may have noticed, this is a part of a continuing series of posts from a foodie who has moved back to Edmonchuck after 20 years away. I apologize if I seem dumb or difficult. That said I want to buy some pepper. And, if there is any way possible, I would rather buy it from a local store than from some megamart on the internet. I would like some nice Tellicherry pepper but if you know of a place that sells Malaysian pepper or any of those spicy peppers from Vietnam I want to know about that too. I want some good pepper. Great pepper is a joy the way great sea salt is. Some of you know that. Some of you can help me. Please.

    You might be able to find some Vietnam peppers in one of the grocery stores in Chinatown; most of them are run by Vietnamese immigrants.

      I am always surprised at what Home Sense has in the salt, pepper and sauce department. I buy plenty of good salt and good peppercorns there. I just picked up a bag of Tellicherry pepercorns from the southside Home Sense last month.

        You may want to try Zenari's downstairs in Manulife. They sell a small selection of 'gourmet' style sauces, condiments, spices, etc, and I have seen them carry a few types of peppercorns.
