We are incredibly lucky to have Camille Aubert to create this gorgeous and delicate soup. What we love is that she has used only a small number of ingredients to come up with something so beautiful. It even sounds beautiful! Strawberries and Lavender are both pollinated by bees so it makes is even more special to combine these with honey.
Strawberry and Lavender Soup
By Camille Aubert, Chef & Nutritional therapist @callherchef (serves 2)
Pour the wine and honey into a medium sized pan. Slowly allow the soup to boil before lowering the heat and letting it simmer.
Pop in the lavender and after 30 seconds, bring off the heat. Place a tea towel on top and allow the soup to sit and infuse for 10-15minutes.
Takes the strawberries and slice them before popping them into a soupbowl. Drizzle the lavender syrup over the top then place in the fridge for two to three hours.

Honey is a delicious ingredient in soup, often used in mediterranean recipes to compliment floral or fruity tones. It can often be tricky to balance the flavours so as not to overwhelm one particular aroma. This is why working with ingredients such as lavender can take a little time to balance the right quantities. As our palates differ from one another it really is a case of trial and error - find out what you like and make a note of it in your recipe book for next time. We have plenty of other soups coming up over the next few weeks and months, so be sure to check them out!
