- In stock online
Brought to Europe by Spanish explorer Hernan Cortes in the 16th century, vanilla became something of an obsession for Queen Elizabeth I. Later known as `black gold', for vanilla's rarity was more precious than gold, it has in recent years lost its lustre and become synonymous with all things bland. This book seeks to re-establish vanilla's lofty perch as one of the most exciting and cherished ingredients on the planet. This book will show you how to use this wondrous spice in a fantastic array of cakes, such as Elderflower and Almond Cake as well as delicious desserts like Persian Rice Pudding. Why not sit back and enjoy a rich, velvety Vanilla Hot Chocolate from the drinks section? You can also inject a little bit of magic into teatime treats with the heavenly Vanilla Scones. If you're looking for something a little different, why not try one of the sensational savoury dishes to delight and surprise your dinner guests? These dishes showcase the extraordinary versatility of vanilla - truly the king of spices.
