Top 5 Restaurant in Country Calls Reluctant Trading Pepper "Finest Tellicherry Peppercorns we have ever seen"
I'm humbled. One of my restaurant customers in Portland, Ava Gene's, just published a list of their producers and they had some pretty darn good things to say about our Tellicherry Peppercorns:
"The Reluctant Trading Experiment imports truly the finest Tellicherry peppercorns we have ever seen. The flavor and fragrance is comparable to the complex notes of a fine aged wine. The company was founded by Scott Eirinberg with help from his friend and India connect Divakar, who convinced the 'reluctant' Scott that peppercorns were a worthwhile industry to pursue. Their story is indeed fascinating and comical."
Ava Gene's was named the #5 Best New Restaurant in America by Bon Appetit Magazine in 2013. They were also called one of the Top 21 Italian Restaurants in America by Thrillist. Stumptown Coffee Founder Duane Sorenson and critically acclaimed Chef Joshua McFadden are the guys behind the Gene's. Look for Chef McFadden's cookbook coming out soon.
When in Portland, do as the Portlanders do. Eat at Ava Gene's.
