Bonjour mes amis!

Finally my first french recipe is here! Due to the fact that I decided for a French inspired name for the blog, it was just a matter of time when I will publish the first recipe from France. It’s hard to decide for one because there are so many pastries which are SO good!

You can have a light and buttery croissant or a fluffy brioche for breakfast, some Macarons for in between, in the afternoon you can pair your coffee or tea with some petit four and if your aren’t totally full already you can end the day with some orange Madeleines, Mille-feuille or charlotte aux fraises… Sounds like the perfect foody day, right?

For this recipe I was inspired by the endless fields of lavender in South France! Therefore I decided to make these Macarons with a filling with lavender and white chocolate. While making these the whole kitchen was immersed in an intense lavender scent. I also used the opportunity to make lavender sugar and lavender syrup for upcoming recipes.
