The name "Bourbon vanilla" is specific to vanilla produced in the Indian Ocean, and more particularly in Madagascar, Comoros, Seychelles, Reunion and Mauritius. This appellation comes from the name of the kings of France who reigned from 1589 to 1789, then from 1815 to 1848. These kings had given their name to the Reunion Island called "Bourbon Island" as early as 1642 when the French took possession of it. The Bourbon Gold vanilla from Madagascar is a very beautiful product which seduces by its olfactory and gustatory qualities. It is appreciated for its cocoa and fruity notes and its pods, fruit of a long maturation in wooden trunks. As a reminder, maturing is the ultimate stage in the cultivation of vanilla. It is at this time that the bean develops all its fragrances and aromas and becomes a luxury product. This process lasts several, months, the duration is determined according to the desired maturation. A checker makes sure that no mouldy bean comes to contaminate the others. Thus, he regularly opens the trunks to remove the poor quality pods to offer you only the best.
This time I offer you an XL pod. 18 to 19 cm long, it reveals its magnificent black grains that will revolutionize your kitchen. Split your pod to remove its grains and integrate them in all your preparations to bring softness and exoticism. Of course, you can also infuse these beans in cow's milk, coconut milk, cream to make a superb vanilla whipped cream, etc. With its cocoa and fruity notes, it also brings a very special flavour to your savoury dishes. The Bourbon Gold vanilla bean from Madagascar 18-19 cm fits perfectly in a fish dish, in a beurre blanc, with chicken or any other recipe you could imagine. With vanilla, there is no principle, there is only pleasure. It's up to you to imagine with which preparation your Madagascar vanilla will go best.
At David Vanille, everyone can order beautiful vanilla beans according to their needs. This time, I propose two XL beans of 18-19 cm. This solution has been imagined to allow you to taste this exceptional vanilla and to know if it is indeed the one that suits you best.
