Champagne Taittinger's Ricotta Lemon Berry Waffles With Lavender Cream

Nothing says breakfast like digging into a big plate of waffles. These can be made using store-bought waffle mix, jazzed up with ricotta and a zing of lemon zest. Top your waffles with fresh berries and a delicate floral lavender cream that sits in cold cream to infuse overnight.
