Vanilla, oft maligned, can be anything but ‘vanilla’. Good vanilla ice cream can be as ‘naughty’ as even the wickedest of chocolates. It just takes some good basic ingredients and of course a real vanilla bean. Most recipes call for one. I use two for really some rich, indulgent vanilla flavor. Pair it with a pear tatin for a deeply satisfying dessert or ‘recovery’ treat. So go ahead, flaunt your inner goddess (or god) with this heavenly bit of sweetness that’ll give bondage some competition.
