Perfume

The liveliness of Szechuan peppercorns is paired with ginger's icy heat.

The words of Olivier Roellinger

After the cold seas and icy winds that blow from the north, the first trade winds (Alizés in French) blow in like a long lost companion on an Atlantic crossing. They offer a first taste of warm breezes and carry with them the flavors of southern seas. How then could a basic vinaigrette be transformed using these unexpected fragrances and flavors?

My goal was to find a combination that tasted of the winds that blow over the southern seas, a spice blend with bold, impetuous character.
