The mamas of our kitchen always put a lot of thought and heart into developing striking new flavor combinations for you, but this week I think we really outdid ourselves. Maybe my sweet tooth is acting up, but in my mind, the standout flavor profiles of this week are lavender + earl grey + chocolate in pudding form and hazelnuts + fennel + sesame seeds in olive oil shortbread cookies. Yum! I could go on, but I'll let tomorrow's menu speak for itself.
