Foundation. Flavor. Food.
La Vera Smoked Hot Paprika comes from a variety of Capsicum annuum chile peppers that are grown in La Vera, a municipal region found within the province of Extremadura in western Spain. It is also referred to as hot smoked paprika, pimentón, or pimentón picante.
To give this paprika its signature flavor, these peppers are dried and smoked over an oak fire for about 15 days. This ensures that the peppers are dry enough to store, have taken on the right amount of smoke, and have developed color stability, so they will stay the same jewel-toned vibrant red.
Our La Vera Smoked Hot Paprika is fruity and complex, with smoky richness.
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
Chef David has been in the culinary industry for over 25 years. His first job was at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. After that he was hooked on the industry. He would continue to work with food whether it was in the back or front of house, in positions from entry level to managerial.
