I have to add this site to the blog. I am also very sorry that I have not done it until now. Arizona Vanilla is a great place for everyone to explore vanilla. I first purchased vanilla beans from Eric and Patty Elsberry more than three years ago. From there we formed a bound and relationship that lead to the publishing of our book “Simply Vanilla” in January of 2007. Definitely go to the site and have a look around. Their prices are great and the products are wonderful, not to mention the fact that both Eric and Patty are two of the kindest people you have ever dealt with. You can find them at www.arizonavanilla.com or access the same site via the link on the right hand side of the page. You will certainly find them and their products at my restaurant and on the menu.
