So, what is vanilla planifolia?

Vanilla planifolia is a species of orchid native to Mexico and Central America, known for its unique and exquisite flavor profile. This precious ingredient is widely used in culinary arts, especially in baking and desserts, as it adds a warm, comforting aroma and a subtle, sweet taste that enhances the richness of the dish. The plant produces long, narrow pods which are harvested by hand, cured, and dried to create the iconic vanilla beans. Its complex chemical composition includes vanillin, a compound responsible for its distinct flavor, along with hundreds of other aromatic molecules that contribute to its unique character.
