When we think of vanilla, we necessarily think of Madagascar. Bourbon vanilla is an appellation that includes several countries: Madagascar, Comoros, Mayotte, Mauritius, Reunion Island. Since the beginning of the 20th century, vanilla has been planted in Madagascar. It quickly became internationally renowned for the quality of its maturing and its aroma. The industry and the great pastry chefs swear by this origin. Although the vanilla industry is going through a difficult period with high prices, consumers' love for vanilla remains intact
Today, Madagascar is the leading vanilla producer with 80% of the world's harvests each year.
Its aromatic amplitude enchants us, it becomes for some an addiction
I prefer it in sweet recipes. For example, when I prepare a crème brûlée, a floating island or simply a poached pear. These are quick and easy recipes to help you appreciate the quality of your Bourbon vanilla. You will be able to discover all its aromatic amplitude and all its cocoa and dried fruit notes in this type of preparation
I've always loved business, travel, men. When I was 18, already at the time, I was going to sell chocolate breads and Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar at markets and flea markets to "make me a piece". I was fascinated by the smell of Bourbon vanilla. Every year, I bought some on the internet several times and sold it to customers on weekends.
I explained and praised to my relatives the quality of Madagascar, its sensual nose, its cocoa notes. Without knowing it, I had fallen into the pot like Obelix, unlike the magic potion, it was in the world of vanilla.
When I went to Lille to take my Bac +2, I continued to sell vanilla on the Wazemmes market, on the flea markets and in front of the Super U in Breteuil. The two franchisees had given me the right at the time to set up my little table in front of their store entrance.
I went to India for the first time that same year thanks to my savings. I discovered an extraordinary country, wonderful people and above all the passion of my life: spices and vanilla
My first trip to Madagascar was in 2012. Landing in Antananarivo, the capital, and flight to Sambava a few hours later.
First sensation, an omnipresent vanilla smell as soon as you get off the plane.
The harvests had just been completed, the pods were spread on jute bags in the exporters' yards, in front of a few shops, along the roads.
I thought I was dreaming. A dream come true!
Meeting with my contacts on the spot, women and men who make the magic of this spice even greater
Visit of the plantations, producers, collectors, setting up of the specifications, discovery of the vanilla country.
If I managed to get there it was thanks to my customers who trusted me. They were the ones who pushed me to move forward, who gave me the chance to live my passion 200%.
Today, Bourbon vanilla remains my first love.
I made some wonderful discoveries during my many trips to the plantations, but the first love is the one that takes us to places that were then unknown.
It then took a lot of perseverance to understand how to improve the quality of my imports.
Change partners, meet a team, a woman more precisely who helped me in my learning, my vanilla sensitivity, my selections of the best wines of Madagascar.
A real partnership can only be built on the basis of mutual trust.
After more than 8 years of searching for the best wines in the world, by acquiring a discipline, a know-how, I manage to propose a vanilla from Madagascar that goes off the beaten track.
IS BOURBON GOLD VANILLA BETTER THAN THE OTHERS?
If I had to tell you only one thing, it's that Vanilla is my Life. When I sell one of my selections, I offer a little bit of myself.
I receive samples all year round. I choose from the best batches, the one that makes me "vibrate".
I do my best to ensure that the price of my selections follows the market price, as accurately as possible. The quality of my vanilla and spices is my signature. Vanilla pods, vanilla grains on the surface, a very gourmet set, ideal to discover Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar. A maturing period of several months for a stunning result in pastries!
The smaller the size of the vanilla pods, the more pods per kilo you will have. The aroma will be greedy and vanilla but less precise than a larger vanilla
*** Madagascar's Bourbon Gold Vanilla
The best of the harvest, a quality that touches excellence between 28 and 37% moisture (more aromatic amplitude), offers cocoa notes on a buttery-creamy combination. Unique quality and David Vanille signature.
Vanilla beans that represent a very small percentage of the harvest. Always in search of exceptional pods, Gold refining, this quality is for lovers of rare and top-of-the-range products.
If you want to please yourself, you will be under the spell!
To get the most out of its aromatic palette, take care to split your pod along its entire length, remove the seeds and integrate it into your recipe.

Ca fait bien longtemps que je ne prenais plus de vanille de Madagascar en raison de la piètre des produits... Les "retrouvailles" sont top ! Cette vanille est de très grande qualité

La vanille de la photo placée sur internet ne correspond pas du tout à la livraison. Gousses fines... seches alors que la photo présente des gousses bien plus charnues... En attente d'utilisation
Comment from David Vanille the 11/10/2019
Bonjour Hélène, Je viens de regarder la photo de votre commande. Les gousses de vanille Bourbon Gold font entre 16 et 18cm pour votre lot. Le taux d'humidité est de 32%, le taux de vanilline de 1.6%. Les photos sont celle du lot de vanille que vous avez achetés. Des gousses de vanille trop humide n'indique pas une vanille de qualité mais une qualité mal affinée avec un développement de moisissures certains. Si de nombreux vendeurs proposent de la vanille "fraîche" ce n'est pas mon savoir-faire. Vendre de l'eau, faire croire qu'une grosse vanille planifolia est un signe de qualité est une arnaque. Je reste à votre disposition si vous avez des questions, Cordialement, David
