On Saturday, September 19, Cornell Plantations threw their first Pepper Party at the Botanical Gardens. A nice crowd estimated at about 800 showed up to view, smell, and taste peppers and some of the chile pepper dishes from Mexico, the American Southwest, China, Thailand, Morocco, Hungary, and West Africa. I presented a Pepper Aroma Therapy lesson that revealed the complex aromas of eight different peppers from Ancho (mild) to Barrackapore (superhot). Above is an overview of the Pepper Party and below are some fun images of the event.
