I'll see if I can round it up, it is part of the Tuscan Dinner Party class.
Basically it is a standard crème brulee recipe, but the milk is steeped with
lavender flowers before being made into the custard (strained prior to
completing the recipe).
I was appalled to see that when I first got there, they were buying the
packages of pre-cut herbs from Whole Foods, and the Lavender was greenery
fronds! Yum, a nice medicinal smell to your dessert - blech! I brought in
my personal baggie of lavender flowers and made it up - and lo! everyone was
amazed at how good it was!
I'll see if I have that recipe here at home, or get it off the computer at
work when I'm there this month (June is Summer Camp month! I'm teaching 4
cooking summer camps this month, to tots, teens, and Girl Sprouts!)
Shortbread would be good with the lavender ice cream.
Some curried fruit would be good with the curry coconut.
We do a lavender crème brulee in one of the Viking classes. With the crisp
sugar coating, it is quite lovely.
