As any culinary enthusiast can attest, few dishes are considered “finished” without the addition of cracked pepper, and many are treated with another “hit” at the table.

More than just a companion to salt, pepper adds a mild but pungent spicy flavor to all kinds of foods.

Black pepper is widely used in virtually every corner of the world as a common seasoning, often as a table companion to salt. The pungent, spice flavor is owing to a compound called piperine, which is also believed to be responsible for causing people to sneeze.

The woodsy and slightly citrus-like scent of pepper is due to carvacrol, linalool, sabinene and other terpenes that reside in the hulls of the dried fruit, which remains intact in black peppercorns. Another scent-making chemical found in the volatile oils in peppercorns is rotundone, which is also found in geranium, rosemary, oregano, basil and thyme.

In cooking, cracked black pepper adds spice and brings out the flavors of other ingredients. When freshly cracked black pepper is served at the table in a small bowl, it is known as poivre mignonette.
