I’m so excited for this month’s lavender matchmaking posts! Like my sister mentioned, lavender is one of my favorite colors and scents, so I love how versatile it can be in cooking, cleaning, and homemaking. I especially love finding ways to incorporate it in delicious sweet and savory foods.
The first time I came across this combination was at a gourmet cheese shop in San Francisco. I was intrigued by their new “Barely Buzzed” cheese that featured a lavender coffee-rubbed rind. I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised by how well the fragrant coffee aroma blended with the subtle floral notes of lavender. I can imagine the coffee and lavender pairing well together not just rubbed on cheese, but in coffee drinks, desserts, or even as a body scrub!
