LAVENDER

Avendula augustifolia

 
Lavender
 
 

In the south of France, where cultivated and wild lavender enrobes the countryside, lavender is much used in cooking. It brings a floral note with a sage like dryness.

Try infusing a little lavender into the cream for your next crem brulee. Pair lavender-infused treats with sharp dark fuits such as blackberries or currants.
