Haha, that is why Guillame is the French Chef and Nick as Brendan says is the "clown". You don't think he sits down and types the recipe himself. he has others do it for him and whoever did, obviously made a mistake.....

What happened to the vanilla in the making? And as for calling them vanilla 'beans' - I can't believe such an experienced person would dumb down to call the seeds 'beans'. And why take them out; surely half the reason real vanilla ice-cream is so exotic is because one can see those tiny little black seeds all through it. And as for 36 egg yolks - try half that amount and it will be as good, and maybe with in the realms of reality [cue in classic French snort of derision].
