Friday Harbor Restaurant, Island Grown Cuisine with a Mediterranean Flair

New Recipe from Lavender Festival Cooking Demonstration

Lavender Satay

Pelindaba Lavender Farm has their annual  festival around the third weekend of July. Some years July can be cold, even rainy, but this year it was glorious! The sun was shining, there was a light, cooling breeze on Sunday, and the lavender was in spectacularly full bloom. All the attendees were in such good spirits, and how can you not be amid such beauty?

As she does every year, Anna Maria carted out lots of tasting samples for her cooking demonstrations. This time she added five new recipes to her collection of lavender creations. Here is one she thought you might enjoy.
