Shauna Sever presents Pure Vanilla: Irresistible Recipes & Essential Techniques ($22.95). Even with a history as rich as its naturally dreamy, creamy flavor, vanilla is overlooked, misunderstood, and generally taken for granted. Hundreds of cookbooks wax poetic about it, but few have given it its due! This special event includes a vanilla tasting!
