200g fromage blanc (curd cheese)
20 pcs rosemary flower
5g unsprayed rose petals
20pcs jasmine flowers
3ea lavender flower
80g caster sugar
1 Thai jasmine smoking candle (Thai grocers)

Whisk fromage blanc until smooth. Fold in all the flowers and refrigerate for 24 hours. Pass the cream through a fine sieve; add sugar and a hint of salt.
Place the candle in a clean small bowl and place the bowl on the top of the cream. Light the candle at both ends, then invert a large bowl to completely enclose the cream and candle. The candle will extinguish and the smoke will be trapped. Keep it for 10 minutes to allow the smoke to infuse the cream. Repeat this process 5-10 times, stirring the cream after every time, until a light smoked flavor is achieved – it should be very delicate.
