Floral foods are one of the year’s hottest culinary trends, due, at least in part, to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s envy-inducing Lemon Elderflower Wedding Cake. But elderflower isn’t the only fragrant floral favoured by royalty; the current Queen Elizabeth’s great great great grandmother, Queen Victoria, was so fond of lavender that, after visiting a distillery owned by a Miss Sarah Sprules in 1886, she appointed Sprules as “Purveyor of Lavender Essence to the Queen.” As a trendsetter, Queen Victoria’s love of this pungent herb translated to its overall popularity, which has since evolved from being used to wash floors & scent linens, to its current place on our plates. Channel your inner queen & head to the kitchen with this royal-worthy roundup, where lavender’s attention-grabbing, earthy & lively flavour is sure to translate into food & drink fit for a king  queen.
