ORIGINS

Berbere spice comes from the Ethiopian word barbare. Barbare translates to “hot” and comes from the Ancient Ethiopian word for pepper, papare. No one is sure when this dish came into being, but historians speculate that its origins lie in the era when Ethiopians controlled the route to the silk road from the Red Sea during the 11th century AD.
