Known as the Vanilla Queen Patricia Rain knows more about the bean than anyone I know. Recently, she sent me some samples and I've lost no time in baking my favorite Golden Lemon Almond Cake with the Tahitian vanilla bean paste, using about 1/4 the volume of the usual vanilla extract. Here's how she describes it on her site: Not all vanilla pastes are created equal, which is why I carry the paste I do. What's so great about our vanilla paste? It's a concentrated flavor made from triple strength pure vanilla extract and freshly ground vanilla beans. It contains no sugar or additives other than xanthan gum, a natural thickener. It packs a lot of flavor and you use less than regular extract. For more information, other products, and recipes check out www.vanilla.com
