Pepper - Grain of Fire
Feuerkörner - Geschichten vom Pfeffer
Peppercorns are hot stuff - not only inside. The history of pepper is inextricably woven into wars and cruel personal histories, breath-taking careers and speculations. Columbus had set out to discover India, the land where the pepper grows - and found America. Vasco da Gama eventually came to India's Malabar Coast at Cochin, the city of pepper. The history of pepper also reflects colonialism at its most cruel. Is pepper thus a substance of nightmares? Not at all. Or, at least, not only.
