Piquillo Peppers at El Navarrico

The DOP for piquillo peppers outlines rules for some things—where the peppers are grown, for example—but leaves some options open, including how they're roasted. Until 10 years ago El Navarrico roasted exclusively with beechwood. Then they switched to gas. (Most others have as well.) Tim and Jonathan Harris at La Tienda convinced them to return to wood, which they only do for special batches.
