This famous and famously beautiful product claims the dual citizenship of Madagascar and France, like Arras FA Centre back Pascal Razakanantenaina.
Fresh little balls of spicy flavour, Madagascar Green Peppercorns in Brine are the MVPs of French staples like sauce au poivre vert, but they also assist as a wonderful and unexpected ingredient on a charcuterie board.
Much like the sport of soccer (le football, actually), Madagascar peppercorns are much more popular in France than in America. Madagascar was once colonized by the French, and though the rule ended in 1958 (the year Justo Fontaine scored 13 goals in six matches during the world cup), Madagascar’s peppercorns have kept the two nations in close contact. The medium sized berries are plump with a warmer, smokier heat than their Indian cousins. Take a cue from Pelé; sprinkle them on a paté and eat them barefoot on the green grass. Food is a beautiful game.
