With David Vanille, as you know, we do not compromise with quality. Whether it is vanilla, my peppers or my spices and aromatics, I always look for the best. From China to Egypt through Iran, Madagascar, Indonesia or Russia, I have discovered little wonders that you will love. As usual, I offer you a gustatory journey. Happiness is often found in simple things. Preparing good dishes with high quality spices and herbs, sharing your creations with your loved ones. Come and discover the best quality spice producers at a fair price for all (producers, importers, customers).
Spices and aromatics are of fundamental importance. They are the ones that make your dish stand out, they are the ones that make the difference between a good and a very good dish. To do this, you need quality so that you can be enchanted by sweet smells and exquisite flavours. Spices and aromatics have a fabulous power. Cumin, curry, pepper, ginger, chives, marjoram, each one will bring that little extra something for a fragrant dish. Each aromatic herb reveals its power and finds its place in your culinary creations. Let me introduce you to some of my finds.
Let's start with the powders. Fenugreek powder is an excellent product that I discovered in India. Fenugreek is an aromatic plant whose leaves and seeds can be used. These seeds can be found whole in your dish. I have chosen to offer you the ground version which you can mix with other spices or use, alone, in a beef massalé or in citrus desserts. Cayenne pepper powder needs no introduction. Its mild and invigorating taste brings that extra kick that some people expect in a dish. To make your pizza oil, to make an exotic dish, to decorate your vegetables, the chilli pepper finds its place in many of your recipes. The star anise powder is a little gustatory jewel. I found it in Vietnam and I was immediately seduced by its bewitching perfume and its aniseed taste. The star anise powder flavours your cream desserts and other fruit salads to give them a whole new dimension. Nutmeg powder comes from Indonesia. Extremely fragrant, it will revolutionize your purées and gratins. But its exquisite flavours are also the perfect accompaniment to a chocolate dessert. Finally, Combava powder is a little treasure that I found in Madagascar. This country does not only excel in vanilla production. Here, combava is grown, an ancient citrus fruit that looks like a lime and brings an incomparable freshness to your dishes. Turmeric powder, cloves, cinnamon, it is difficult to mention all my selection as it is so wide.
Let's discover other spices and herbs that should make you fall in love. First of all, let's mention the Amazonian Tonka bean. As sweet as vanilla, as intense as almonds, the Tonka bean can be grated on your sweet and savoury preparations. It goes perfectly with meats, fish, but also creams and other chocolate desserts. It is truly the little extra that makes all the difference. How can we talk about herbs, spices, aromatics, exceptional products, tasty cuisine without mentioning saffron? This luxury product is simply extraordinary. In pistil, it reveals all its aromatic power and revolutionizes your fish. Why is saffron so expensive? Simply because this spice comes from the crocus plant and the removal of the pistils can only be done manually if you do not want to alter this exceptional product. Moreover, it is necessary to count more than 100 000 flowers to obtain one kilo of saffron.
If you like spicy dishes, but not overly spicy, I suggest the crushed Niora pepper. I found it near our home, in Spain. At 3 on the Scoville scale, this mild pepper will delicately spice up your dish like an Espelette pepper would.
I also offer freeze-dried products such as parsley and basil. Of course, it is always interesting to work with the raw product in the kitchen. But if it is not the season or if you are short of these herbs, you will be delighted to always have a jar at hand to accompany your preparations. Freeze-drying, if done properly, does not betray your product and its quality. Among the essential of my selection, I present you herbs of Provence. Thyme, oregano, rosemary, savory, how can you imagine barbecued meat without these southern flavors? And because I don't like to do things the same way as others and because I always want to offer you different products, I add basil to these herbs of Provence to enhance their taste and give them that little extra something that makes all the difference.
