The perfect choice for discovering rare plantations.
There is Petrus red wine and there is (also) my Ugandan vanilla - Grand Cru...

I supervised every step of the making of this variety. I handled the sorting myself and oversaw the elaboration of the maturing process as I wanted to get the best quality possible.
This exquisite and rare vanilla grows on the verdurous hills of Western Uganda, close to the Rwandan and Congolese borders. Its producers managed to improve how they work in order to offer a Planifolia variety that would meet international standards and could be sold abroad.
Even though the quantity could never even dream of matching the Madagascan Varieties, its quality is a great contender to the latter. Its aromatic palette is as wide and as exquisite as the Madagascan finest products.
Its wild notes and cocoa-like undertones makes it one of the chefs’ favourites. It’s really sublimated when used to make vanilla extract or different alcohol-based macerations (vanilla rum or vanilla liqueur for example).
It can also be used in salty preparations where it will reveal all wild and spicy hints, even if you only use half a bean. Using it alongside Dijon mustard when you cook a filet-mignon, will blow everyone’s mind. It will sublimate any recipe, truly.
The key to success with this exceptional Vanilla is maceration. You have to give it time to release all of its unique aroma and flavour.
I consider myself truly blessed to be able to offer you the discovery of this unusual and breathtaking variety. This product is a true olfactory odyssey.
Don’t hesitate to give me feedback after trying it, whether it’s in salty or sweet recipes.

De loin la meilleure vanille que je n’ai jamais trouvé en magasin et sur d’autres sites les gousses sont très charnues et possèdent beaucoup de graines moelleuses et pas sèches Je recommande
