Elderflower time, my favourite!
I’ve always thought of elderflower as a very British thing…
H: Do you use elderflowers in anything you make Maria?
M: In Spain, no! But here, of course! We make cocktails with lovely Spanish Cava, we make desert, soft meringue, elderflower and raspberry, many, many things. Here, you mix the cocktail, I’ll make pudding!
