    • A little-known fact about vanilla beans:

      In 1841 a 12-year-old slave by the name of Edmond Albius resided on the French island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean and made a discovery that would change the culinary world forever. He found that the delicate vanilla orchid could be hand-pollinated. You see, up until this realization, vanilla orchids were only pollinated by a small, stingless bee called the Melipona, and some varieties of hummingbirds, which hindered global cultivation of the Vanilla beans. With Albius' discovery came greater cultivation and distribution potential.
