Vanilla: Cooking with the King of Spices


Vanilla is a remarkable spice with a truly remarkable history. Brought to Europe by Spanish explorer Hernán Cortés in the 16th century, vanilla became something of an obsession for Queen Elizabeth I. Later known as ‘black gold’, for vanilla’s rarity was more precious than gold, it has in recent years lost its lustre and become synonymous with all things bland. This book seeks to re-establish vanilla’s lofty perch as one of the most exciting and cherished ingredients on the planet.This book will show you how to use this wondrous spice in a fantastic array of cakes, such as Elderflower and Almond Cake as well as delicious desserts like Persian Rice Pudding.
