Product description

This title deals with planning, planting and cultivating over 25 edible flower schemes with accompanying recipes. It is an illustrated flower directory provides at-a-glance information on over 45 edible flower varieties and their complementary foods. Professional gardening and cooking tips ensure success both outdoors and in the kitchen. It is a stunning visual guide and informative reference to consult and treasure. Flowers have been used for culinary purposes since earliest times: rose petals have been used to perfume cakes for centuries, and the richly scented 'Parma' violet was a popular ingredient during the Victorian era. This unique gardening guide and recipe collection offers over 25 planting schemes, with accompanying recipes showing how to use the flowers in the kitchen. You can create a spring planter of violets and primroses, a scented lavender basket, or a striking pairing of sunflowers and nasturtiums, then create tasty dishes and drinks. With gorgeous photographs by award-winning Michelle Garrett, this book will delight both gardeners and cooks alike.
