Recipe for Vanilla Beans using Vanilla from Tahiti

Summer time, it is once again Vanilla Bean season in Tahiti and all of French Polynesia.  By now most of the vanilla beans grown in this region have been harvested and cured or are still curing and further drying.  This year, at Slofoodgroup, we received our first shipment of the new season harvest just a couple weeks ago and we can once again say, vanilla from Tahiti and French Polynesia is amazing. 

The warmer summer months for most people always bring about quite a few things; warmer weather, family gatherings and in most cases food, drink and dessert.  It was with these thoughts in mind that we reached out to our friend Chef Kriss Harvey at andSons Chocolatiers for his thoughts on something sweet using our vanilla from Tahiti . What he came up with is incredible.  Using the classic summer fruit of mango, paired with vanilla from Tahiti and finishing Japanese yuzu zest this Pâte de Fruit recipe is flavor that is sure to please the palette and challenge even a seasoned cook.  We hope you enjoy and as always happy cooking.
