    The Toasted Mushroom and Farro is delicious. Balsamic is just enough acid to balance out the richness of the Mushroom “gravy”.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Rosey harissa chicken

    • Maefleur on March 30, 2020

      This recipe also ran in the March 2020 issue of Food and Wine Magazine, which I used with chicken thighs. I used the option of paprika for the rose harissa seasoning, using a mix of sweet, hot and smoky paprika. Delicious dish.

  • Grill-roasted chickens with herbes de Provence and extra lavender aka house chicken

    • Maefleur on March 30, 2020

      I adapted for a single butterflied chicken on a gas grill. After preheating grill, switched middle burner off and outer two to medium wtth wood chip packets over outer two. Cooked to temp. The smoking method worked great, resulting in a juicy, herby, wonderfully smoky bird.
