Dried lavender flowers are excellent for sweet preparations (biscuits, cakes or plumcakes), but also in savory ones: they are in fact the ideal complement to delicious risotto, also in combination with other aromatic herbs such as rosemary or with sweet-tasting ingredients like pumpkin. It is necessary to pay attention to the dosage: given the strong aroma it gives off, lavender must be used in small doses so that it does not cover the taste of the other ingredients of the preparation.
