Eat a flower

Lavender smells pretty, but is it food?

What better time to eat a flower than spring time?

Lavender has a potent smell that I don’t really equate to savoury food so I was a but apprehensive about this. So I crushed just 1 flower bud, mixed it with honey and coated some deboned chicken thighs. But after cooking, the flavour almost completely disappeared so I wish I’d used a bit more.

  1. the first t ime i had lavender in a savory dish it was with lamb and it was delicious. the floral taste with the game-iness of the meat was a good combo.

      Oh yes, I can imagine that the rosemary-ish taste of lavender would go well with lamb.
