During my trip to LA last week I headed into the Santa Ynez Valley with Steve Wasser to explore some wineries, and we stumbled upon a beautiful lavender farm, Clairmont Farms. After I got over the swooning, I knew it was time to grab a handful of buds and bake that Lavender Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze from the Gilded Fork test kitchen (the one I’ve been dying to taste).
We’re taking a departure from my normal show format, so join me in the kitchen for a bit of mixing, baking and mess-making. And lest anyone is entertaining the myth that I’m a food snob of epic proportions, this will demonstrate that I, too, have my own blunders and mishaps in the kitchen. It all makes for a nice helping of fun and merriment, methinks, particularly when served with a hearty tablespoon of food porn from my mother.
