Lana Campbell, the chef andowner of the Garden Bistro, located in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, shared this restaurant favorite with me, so I am sharing it with you.

Strawberry Lavender Soup tastes like a special occasion soup. You will have repeat requests for this chilled treat. Serve it on Valentines Day, at garden parties, or for soup and salad luncheons. Serve it with sugar cookies as soup “crackers” and make it your own by adding fresh lavender sprigs as garnish.

Make sure you use culinary lavender (chemical-free, dried flower buds). I've reduced the quantities of Campbell's original, restaurant-sized dish.

I hope this recipe inspires you.

Though this post is old, I've just come across it today.  The recipe as printed is incorrect-(4. In a separate container, blend 3 cups, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in a food processor.) Am I to understand this step to be 3 cups of whipping cream?
