felicissima di ricevere questo post interessantissimo sulla vaniglia che mi son bevuta in un “sorso“ adesso vado a curiosare nei link, e adesso alla maniera della Brii ……. bacissimo ^___^

Simona Carini

Grazie Martissima. Mi fa piacere che il post ti sia piaciuto :)


I have never heard of vanilla Fleur de sel, but I will try it now. It's a very creative idea for foods that bridge the sweet and savory boundaries, like your breakfast bread pudding. Brilliant Simona!
Do you want my whole wheat honey challah recipe? I think it would be great in your budino with dried berries!

Simona Carini

Give it a try, Tami. I saw it the first time a few years ago at the SF Fancy Food Show and as soon as I got home, I prepared a little jar of it. I would love your recipe for whole wheat honey challah. I add some whole wheat flour to the recipe I have been using (from Peter Reinhart). I tried a WW recipe once from another source and was not particularly impressed, so I am very interested in yours. I belong to a grain CSA, so I get freshly milled whole wheat flour almost every month.


I think it's great to be able to make your own vanilla. I still have mine and now I don't have to worry about buying those expensive little bottles anymore. Yay! :-)

Simona Carini

Ciao Paz. I remember that you also make your own. Vanilla extract of good quality is indeed expensive. I am eager to see how mine comes out.
