An Interview With Executive Pastry Chef Marian Getz

We love to get to know our customers. We asked a few questions of world-class pastry chef Marian Getz, author of the Simply the Best series of cookbooks, frequent guest on the Home Shopping Network, and Executive Pastry Chef for Wolfgang Puck.

Are there any myths about Tahitian vanilla that you would like to dispel?

Yes, the myth that vanilla is too expensive is just BS. Do your homework and add it up. You can pay more for crappy vanilla but your dishes will suffer for it.

Also, the crazy myth that you shouldn't use Tahitian vanilla for hot preparations because some of the perfume will be lost. Of course flavors are muted when we manipulate them with heat, but the wonderful nuances are still there. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn't use Tahitian vanilla with heat! A change in flavors is true of most of foods we cook. For example, onions change dramatically during cooking, which is a wonderful thing, and many times extra onion is added at the end to add a fresh punch of flavor. Likewise, in some cases, a bit more vanilla is added at the end of cooking to add another layer of flavor.

How is Tahitian vanilla different from other types of vanilla?

Tahitian vanilla is totally different from others in the most wonderful way. To teach yourself the difference, smell and use them side-by-side. You will see and smell and taste the difference instantly. For me, the Madagascar beans and extract have a medicinal taste and smell that is just awful. You like what you like, and not everyone agrees on what is the best. For me, there is no contest! Tahitian rules!

"From the first touch, you realize this is no ordinary vanilla. The subtle, tender and moist bean is intoxicatingly robust to the nose with a vibrant and powerful taste. I have just found my favorite vanilla bean"

Customer service was fast and helpful and ordered products were received within a few days of ordering. Highly recommend!!"
