Lavender in dessert - or anything at all - does not a happy family make in my home so I barely glanced at this month's chosen recipe for Lavender-White Chocolate Pots de Crème before checking Dorie's bonne ideé, hoping for an alternative flavour suggestion - she didn't let me down! Mint and citrus zest as replacements for lavender sounded good to me.
The mint was rather subtle and the flavour from the orange peel I used wasn't
present at all so these were mainly decadently rich and creamy white
chocolate baked custards - not a bad thing at all for fans of white
chocolate. They went over well.
