the forgotten history of spice in portugal

Portugal once held a central role in the spice trade during the Age of Discovery, pioneering maritime routes to the East Indies in the 15th and 16th centuries. It was the Portuguese who introduced hot chili peppers to Europe, a vital commodity that they procured during their eastern voyages.

Rediscovering and acknowledging this forgotten spice history fuels our passion about spices and their connection to Portugal's culinary heritage and its influence on global food cultures.
