Lavender is usually paired with fruits and sweet confections, but have you ever tried it paired with savory foods? When I came across this roast chicken recipe, I was thrilled to discover that lavender is used as one of the herbs to flavor the chicken! It’s combined with thyme, rosemary, marjoram here in a mixture similar to the popular spice blend, Herbes de Provence. In fact, you can purchase Herbes de Provence with lavender here or you can make your own at home. Try it rubbed on chicken and lamb, or as a pork glaze!
