Food Trend: Cooking With Lavender

Lavender Isn't Just For a Bouquet

There's something slightly magical about the bright color and powerful fragrance of a big bouquet of lavender. For years we've been raving about lavender-infused cocktails, and now lavender is making its way into many home chefs' kitchens for the first time. And it's not just sitting pretty in a bouquet.

Lavender is part of herbes de Provence, but this flower is beginning to stand alone as a spice staple in both savory and sweet dishes. Its robust flavor is sweet and floral with citrus notes. But like rosemary, the trick with lavender is that a little goes a long way; you don't want to ever feel like you're eating perfume. I'm curious about your thoughts. Do you love cooking with lavender, or is this one of those trends you're not willing to try?
