INGREDIENTS

  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup 2016 Pietro Family Cellars Chardonnay, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
  • ½ lemon juiced, about 2 Tbsp.
  • 2 Tbs. + 1 tsp. GC Napa Valley Natural Lemon Olive Oil

TO PREPARE

  1. Add the following to a medium saucepan and whisk well: heavy whipping cream, Chardonnay, lemon juice, 2 Tbsp. Lemon Olive Oil, and crushed Lavender Flower Kernels. Heat the mixture over medium heat until hot, not boiling. Remove from heat. • Put the white chocolate chips and egg yolks in a blender. Turn blender on to its lowest setting, slowly add the heated mixture and blend until smooth.

Drip 1/8 tsp. Lemon Olive Oil on top of each serving, followed by a small pinch of Lemon Tellicherry Pepper and Marjoram Finishing Sea Salt. Garnish with a few basil ribbons.
