What You’ll Do

Vanilla is one of the most popular flavors on earth, but where it comes from can be a bit of a mystery. As Tamiza Teja demonstrates, learning to make that familiar taste yourself is a lot simpler than you might think. During this hands-on workshop, the chef introduces participants to many types of vanilla extract before leading the group in creating their own aromatic ingredient.

  • Learn Vanilla Bean Basics
    The workshop begins with a PowerPoint introducing the vanilla bean—what it is, where it comes from, and how its flavor varies.

  • Taste Commercial and Artisanal Extracts
    You will taste four commercial vanilla extracts and three made by Chef Teja, and rank the different flavors on a worksheet.

  • Bottle a Personalized Extract
    Chef Teja will teach you to make the type of vanilla extract you most preferred from the tasting. You’ll leave with a small jar of the extract, which will be ready for use at home after two weeks of steeping.

After that burst of culinary creativity, Tamiza was hooked. Her drive to create tantalizing treats continues today, carrying into her professional life as a pastry cook at various bakeries and cafés.
