LavendeR Honey Cheesecake

It was ‘like a lavendeR’ in the air when I visited Province, France.

LavendeR’s are soo versatile. It is used in cooking, decoration, perfumes, it has health benefits and what not! It is also one of the reason why I named my blog after it. My blog is not only about one category its about different interests I have. It could be gardening, cooking, travelling, home styling… I also started my blog after visiting lavendeR fields so it was back of my mind.

I was very curious about the taste of this flower in the food. I tried lavendeR ice-cream which was very good and unique. It had a very mild flavour and smell. So I bought organic dried LavendeR buds to try in my recipes. I also bought lavendeR honey.

I found this lavendeR cheesecake recipe in Taste of Home which looked interesting and easy. This is the first time I used flowers in my recipe and was very excited to taste it. After tasting it was worth the try! image
