A Royally Delicious Lemon Elderflower Cake

May 22, 2018

The marriage of Meghan Markle, former Hollywood actress and divorcée, and His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales (aka Prince Harry) has caused quite a stir both in England and abroad. And while Meghan may not be what the Royal family had in mind, there’s something about the way they’ve embraced this unexpected, yet utterly charming American that has inspired an intense enthusiasm for this union around the globe.

With its balmy Mediterranean breezes, sun-drenched fields of lavender and snow-capped mountain ranges, there are few more gorgeous wine regions on Earth. However, despite its natural beauty, the region’s wine has never been considered especially noteworthy. In fact, quite the contrary. Rosé was considered an everyday, “cheap and cheerful” style of wine…until a few years ago. And today, with the popularity of this style of wine hitting the stratosphere, any wine lover seeking to “empower their palate” needs a guide to these pink wines which can vary widely in terms of style and quality....
