Q: Hello Dave,
I heard on a television cookery program (by Rick Stein) that there is a certain pepper which, although not hot and spicy, every so often is very fiery (almost like playing Russian Roulette with chiles). Have you by any chance heard of such a pepper? I think it is grown around Spain, but I am not sure.
Thank you in advance,
A: Hello Daniel:
It is pimiento de padrón, from northern Spain.
