What is Vanuatu vanilla?

Located above New Caledonia, Vanuatu is a small country composed of about 80 islands. If you are familiar with New Caledonian vanilla, Vanuatu vanilla is more confidential. This does not take away its quality, on the contrary.

This heavenly territory is home to vanilla plantations that flourish in an environment where the climate is extremely favorable for the development of beautiful vanilla beans. The vanilla trees flourish on the volcanic lands of the Melanesian archipelago which offer its specific taste.

The Vanuatu people grow vanilla planifolia in the heart of the Coral Sea. If this name is familiar to you since it is the most cultivated vanilla in front of the pompona vanilla and the tahitensis vanilla, you will discover new gustatory horizons here. If the nature of the orchid itself is important, the land on which it is grown also impacts the taste of vanilla.

What is the flavor of Vanuatu vanilla?

Vanuatu vanilla develops very specific flavors. You will fall under the spell of its fruity and slightly woody notes, drawing discreetly on the cocoa. It is a small festival of flavors that I propose you to discover.

The harvest of Vanuatu vanilla

Vanuatu vanilla is cultivated on the volcanic lands of the Melanesian archipelago and is a product that presents very beautiful pods. Brown, shiny and with some marbling, they are very fleshy, this vanilla asserts its generous character. The pods are picked at high maturity and are refined for a long time to develop all the flavors of this vanilla.

How to use Vanuatu vanilla?

Vanuatu vanilla is a small revolution in your kitchen. You will love its complex and reassuring flavors at the same time.

Our recipe ideas with Vanuatu vanilla

Sea bream tartar with Vanuatu vanilla

Cultivated in the heart of the Coral Sea, this vanilla goes perfectly with fish. As a starter, I suggest a small tartar of sea bream to whet your appetite. Take some nice fillets of sea bream and cut them into small cubes. Slice an onion and finely chop some chives. Split the vanilla bean and remove the seeds. Place in olive oil with lemon, mustard, salt and pepper. Add the onion and chives and mix well. Add the sea bream and keep it in the fridge for one hour.

Papillote of cod with vanilla sauce

Prepare your papillote by putting cod fillets, salt, pepper, olive oil and grated vegetables (zucchini, carrots, etc.) according to your taste. Scrape a vanilla bean, remove the seeds and mix them with a creamy butter. Brown a shallot in a saucepan with white wine and let it reduce. Add the vanilla butter and then the liquid cream, making sure to whip it well (you can add a little flour to thicken, but not too much). Serve your fish and drizzle with Vanuatu vanilla butter sauce.

Vanuatu Vanilla Cream Cake

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best. To make this extremely moist cake, whip fresh cream and whole eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and split Vanuatu vanilla beans. Add the powders to the cream/egg mixture, making sure to whisk well to avoid lumps. Pour into a buttered pan and bake at 180° for 45 minutes.

The health benefits of Vanuatu vanilla

Vanuatu vanilla, like all vanillas, is a product with multiple virtues that will be the best ally of your well-being.

It is a natural antidepressant and a stimulant that reduces the effects of fatigue. Rich in polyphenols, vanilla is an antioxidant that slows down cell aging.

Vanilla also has aphrodisiac virtues and will be your best ally in the context of a diet because of its sweetening power with very few calories.

Finally, vanilla promotes digestion and stimulates the appetite.

Exceptionnelle!! Très belles gousses et une senteur hors du commun. Je ne connaissais pas cette vanille. Ce fut une agréable surprise de les découvrir. Je recommande.

Loïc M. published the 24/06/2023 following an order made on 05/06/2023


J'ai préféré celle-ci comparée à d'autre vanilles de milieu de gamme. Elle à un bon parfum, orienté cuir cacao et plus, j'aime beaucoup.

Comment from David Vanille the 22/06/2023
Merci sincèrement Loïc pour votre avis. Ce sont des gousses issues de plantations confidentielles avec très peu de volume. Depuis Mars 2023 avec les 2 cyclones et le tremblement de terre, elles sont devenues extrêmement rares. Les notes musquées, cuir-cacao et le final fruités est magnifique. Un véritable trésor à utiliser dans un sirop, un rhum arrangé ou un poisson curry-vanille. Passez une excellente journée, Au plaisir, David
