For thousands of years, gourmands have prized almond extract for its sumptuous, full-bodied flavor. The almond can be classified as a fruit, which originated in the Middle East where its trees were planted along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, the Egyptian pharaohs flavored their breads with almond oils and Cleopatra is said to have been so enamored with the fruit that she regularly bathed in its milk.

The cultivation and use of almonds in baking later spread to Italy, where, since the 1500s, almonds have become a mainstay ingredient in cookies, jams, cakes and liquors, such as amaretto. Spanish conquistadors brought the almond seed to California, planting orchards where the heavily perfumed, flowering trees still flourish today. Almonds continue to be a widely popular ingredient used in cookies, cakes, pastries and more.

What Chefs Have to Say

About our products

"It’s no secret, both for cooking and baking, always use the best ingredients. What’s the point of investing time to create something and use average ingredients? Vanilla Extract and Vanilla Bean Paste are my favorites, as well as the Lemon Extract. I like using the Vanilla Bean Paste, as it is the closest to using fresh vanilla pods with all the glorious little seeds, and the consistency doesn’t interfere with the recipes.”
