Recipes

Lavender will add a unique flavour to your dishes. Surprise your family or guests with this exotic herb.

There are just a couple of guidelines to be able to use dried lavender or lavender essence successfully: Measure the ingredients carefully. Lavandula angustifolia (the one with the sweet perfume) is the ONLY lavender to use for cooking purposes.

Buy from a reputable source, as it should be chemical free. Do not use dried lavender meant for pot pourri, as it may contain other perfumed oils.

With these guidelines in mind, happy cooking!
