Codename Madeleine: rich butter cookies, heady jasmine blossom, bright cardamom

 “Liberté” -- last words of Noor Inayat Khan

 Buttery, rich cookies melt into creamy blossoms of heady jasmine, sinking luxuriously only to be lifted again by a scintillating spark of cardamom.

Notes: rich butter cookies, jasmine blossom, cardamom

Noor Inayat Khan, born to a royal Indian family, understandably not the biggest fan of Britain (imperialism!), nevertheless took on the role of British spy during the Nazi occupation of France. Her role was at odds with an upbringing of pacifism and poetry readings, but she defied those odds, escaping the Nazis and singlehandedly doing the work of an entire team of radio operators for five months while the British tried to replace the operators that had been captured. After her betrayal at the hands of a double agent, she faced torture and ultimately death with the kind of bravery most people can only dream they’ll have and hope they’ll never need.
