Tonka Bean Essence & Sumac Powder Uses

Recommended Posts

Picked up some tonka bean aroma/essence as well as some sumac powder and well...besides infusing panna cotta or creme brulee with the tonka bean, what else can I do with these 2 ingredients? Dessert, appetizer and main course dish ideas would all be welcome!

I'd rather live in a world without truffles than in a world without onions.

You can make chocolate bonbons.

Could you say where you got your Tonka bean essence? Tonka beans are problematic in the U.S.

I got it from a restaurant fine food supplier called Marche Transatlantique...out of Montreal.

I try to use Tonka beans anywhere I might use vanilla. A little tonka cream sauce on lobster is good.

I use sumac in fattouche salad and with chicken.

I buy my tonka at Anatol (Montreal), they might ship-they do package some of their own things.
