Lavender Biscuits

Sorry been too busy with rehearsals and driving up and down the country to cook, let alone post!!
April in Paris has now opened and is settling in well so hopefully will start baking again in the next couple of weeks. We are all over the country until June - details are on the Hull Truck website ( on tour page ).
We were invited to some new friends, John and Neil, for dinner on Sunday evening and we had the most beautiful meal. John is a real foodie and had gone to so much effort. Everything was perfect and he had made three puddings and petit fours!!!I've decided he should definitely be on telly presenting a food programme and cooking!!!Here's John with the apple tarte tatin he had made for the 1st time!!
And here he is again with an chocolate and almond cake from Katie Caldesi' Italian Cookery Course book - a really beautiful book with some fab recipes!! 
Here's Gracie and Kenny about to tuck into a lemon and raspberry souffle - my favorite! I love anything lemony!!
And finally we were treated to some beautifully fragrant Lavender biscuits with our coffee.They were beautiful , melt in the mouth, and so pretty.
A really lovely evening and we went away with a doggy bag full of puds - Hurrah!!
Thanks John and Neil.
