Vanilla, the world's most versatile flavour, thrives in some of the world's most intriguing places. Tim Ecott has spent years tracing its story from the Gulf Coast of Mexico to Madagascar, Tahiti, Reunion, Seychelles and around the botanical collections of Europe. Endangered in the wild, vanilla is now more valuable than at any time in history - a value that places it at the centre of a secretive multimillion dollar trade for which men are being murdered. Tim Ecott has sought out vanilla's rich history and in doing so has brought to life these fascinating, faraway, and misunderstood places.
