In this flip cookbook, Gand offers tips on working with both vanilla beans and vanilla extract, revealing which is best for what, and includes a helpful substitution guide. And then it's on to the good stuff. recipes for irresistible sweets that showcase vanilla's beguiling flavor. With one section devoted to desserts using whole vanilla beans, think Vanilla Raspberry Rice Pudding with Lemon-Vanilla Caramel and Late-Night Vanilla Flan, and another focusing on extract, such as Vanilla-Blueberry Crumb Cake and Boston Cream Cupcakes, these are recipes that are anything but plain vanilla.
