New Flavour: Lemon Rosemary

Bon Macaron

This week we're heading Mediterranean-wards with a juicy, herbaceous flavour concocted with fresh lemons and rosemary. As an ingredient, rosemary is a great opportunity for us to indulge in one of our favourite things here on this blog: antique botanical prints. Before you peruse our little collection below, though, DID YOU KNOW that the name "rosemary" derives from the Latin for "dew" (ros) and "sea" (marinus)? So basically its name means "dew of the sea". According to legend it was draped around the Greek goddess Aphrodite when she rose from the ocean. As west coasters we find that particularly lovely. So if you're heading to the beach this weekend, this is obviously the perfect treat to bring with you. :)
