The latest gourmet spice in vogue with the top chefs. A captivating yet subtle aroma, a complex mix of bitter almond, vanilla and hay, which comes from their unique ingredient coumarin. Strong flavoured and slightly bitter try it grated into chocolate (all forms of chocolate), over warm potatoes, butternut purée, use it to flavour sugar (as with a vanilla pod). As with nutmeg, tonka beans can be toxic and should be consumed in moderation. High doses of coumarin can be dangerous, so treat with respect and enjoy this unique spice.
