I was particularly interested in more ideas and recipes for making use of the abundance of lavender leaves instead of the flowers. As a result, the 4 recipes I located using leaves left me a bit disappointed in my personal purchase.
Brian Smale's photography is phenomenal. There is eye candy here for any lover of lavender.
Another strength this book seems to have over other recipe books I have purchased would be a great section on drinks---both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. That section alone takes up pages 37 through 60.
After trying just one of her recipes, I feel I have indeed started on a whole new adventure in cooking with those purple flowers that I thought were just for sachets! This is one charming little book that I guarantee anyone who
has fun cooking will move to the top of their cookbook collection. A new and exciting meaning for Flower Power!
But beyond the taste tempting treats that she highlights, exploring the world of lavender in this volume leads to pleasant surprises on many other levels also. Concise and well organized, it offers fascinating and useful background in its "From Garden top Table" chapter, covering both the cultural context of lavender and botanical lore on this exotic member of the mint family. In this same section, she sets forth, simply and accessibly, three fundamental techniques - infusions, baking, and dry roasting - that enable the reader to create a multitude of delectable dishes, from the simple to the sophisticated.
Well-indexed, and including a useful "Pantry" section on local and internet lavender sources and resources, this book is sure to appeal to cooks of all levels, from novices to practitioners of nouvelle cuisine.
