I propose you today a Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar in XXL format. These vanilla beans from 20 to 22 cm are simply superb. This very intense vanilla offers a subtle taste and is distinguished by its notes of cocoa and fruit. Its sweet flavour does not just enhance your dishes, it sublimates them. It is a real culinary revolution that I offer you with this exceptional product. These long Bourbon vanilla beans, once split, reveal a quantity of black beans that will come to perfume all your preparations. Fleshy, these beans will also be perfect infused in milk or cream. With them, you will never see vanilla the same way again.
If you are a pastry lover, I suggest you to use this vanilla from Madagascar in the following recipes:
- crème brûlée,
- custard - whipped
cream - yoghurt
cake - ice
cream - custard
flan - vanilla
ganache - cheesecake
- panna cotta

The great thing about vanilla is that it's a real chameleon. It knows how to adapt to any situation to make your dishes always better. Because, beyond these sweet recipes, it goes perfectly with savoury dishes. Here are a few ideas to remember: - chicken coconut pineapple; - stew; - veal blanquette; - sea sauerkraut; - monkfish; - salmon; - beurre blanc; - prawns; - shrimp in coconut milk; - duck; - etc. This may seem surprising, and I hear it perfectly. But it must be said that a vanilla bean in a savoury dish brings another dimension to it. Offer your guests a real taste journey full of exoticism and surprise.
Bourbon vanilla is not just a name, it's an appellation. Madagascar is one of the 5 territories that have the right to name their vanilla in this way. Limited to the Indian Ocean, the name "Bourbon" comes from the old name of Reunion Island, Bourbon Island. The island itself owes its provisional name to the kings who ruled France from Henry IV to Charles X. To obtain an exceptional Bourbon vanilla requires passion and patience. The cultivation of vanilla is a true art. I found producers as passionate as me in Madagascar in the Sava region. Located in the north-east of the island, this region is perfectly exposed and offers ideal conditions for the vanilla tree to flourish. And, as with any plant, a vanilla tree that blossoms is a vanilla tree that produces quality.
One of the essential steps in the cultivation of vanilla is the maturing process. The beans are placed in a wooden trunk for several months and checked to make sure the quality is there. It is during this maturing process that the vanilla will develop all its flavours, which requires great mastery to obtain a truly exceptional product.
I propose here to order two vanilla beans. This small batch is perfect to discover the XXL version of my Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar. Test it to see if it meets your expectations or if you prefer a smaller bean, or even a bean from another vanilla producing country.
