Vanilla: The Cultural History of the World's Favorite Flavor and Fragrance - Rain, Patricia

The Spanish considered vanilla the ultimate aphrodisiac, the Totonac Indians called it the fruit of the gods, and the Aztecs taxed the Mayans in vanilla beans, using the beans as currency. In this colorful history, Patricia Rain explores the incredibly diverse effect of vanilla on the worlds of food, medicine, psychology, and even politics.
