A pastry chef's dream vanilla bean. Our superior beans are 4 grams each, and carry two times as much vanilla as most ordinary beans! Because of this, they even have a great depth of flavour, which spans to orchids and berry notes. They can also be used more adventurously to flavour savoury dishes such as raviolis too.
*UPDATE* NEW STOCK RECEIVED
As you may know, there is a global Vanilla crisis and big shortage since mid 2016, and suppliers at origin are now demanding sky high rates for goods, about 5 times what we have paid in 2015... and also a severe shortage of goods. We regret to say that we are not able to send free samples for this product.

|Industry Knowledge||It is a native of Atlantic Coast from Mexico to Brazil. In the wild, vanilla vines (which attach themselves to living trees) may grow to a length of 80 feet or more. At the time of Cortez's visit to the New World, the conquistador observed the Aztec royalty enjoying a sweet drink of vanilla-scented chocolate. Impressed, he took sacks of vanilla beans back to Europe with him along with the gold and gems of the defeated Aztec empire. For the next few hundred years, attempts to cultivate the vanilla orchid outside Mexico and Central America proved futile, until a 12 year old French slave discovered how to hand-pollinate the plant in 1841. Since then, commercial varieties have sprung up throughout the world however, the best come from Madagascar. Here, it is possible to obtain the largest, most meaty sizes, up to 5 and even 6 grams in weight per bean, as opposed to commonly found 1-2 gram pieces. Regency's average vanilla pods are 5.5 grams each. These larger sizes also mean that the vanilla pods are more developed and have complex orchid-like flavours. Learn more about Vanilla.|
