A deliciously fragrant custard, delicately enhanced with fresh lavender flowers. The perfect spring or summertime dessert, or anytime! Use fresh organic lavender from your garden (or storebought culinary lavender). Cook time includes one hour stand time and several hours chill time. From pastry chef Jack Fisher at Nine-Ten Restaurant in La Jolla, CA.
