I have always liked flowers. I vividly remember when I was about five years old my parents came back from Paris and my mother had purchased sugared flowers from Fauchons. At the time I thought this was one of the coolest things ever. Flowers are an easy way to decorate a dish, use them in a dessert or a salad. In f act, there are a group of flowers that are edible.

Here are a group of edible flowers:

Carnation, Chrysanthemum, Cornflower, Daisy, Gardenia, Honeysuckle, Lavender, Marigold, Nasturtium, Pansy, Peony, Rose, Viola, Violet.

  1. Serious, beautiful and delicious, who would have thought? Adding edible flowers as a garnish is a great substitute for the oh so ordinary greens and herbs that are commonly used by the average chef. This is great tip, very useful for entertaining because you want a dish to look as good as it tastes!!!!

  2. Keep up the good work!

  3. I liked this recipe and look forward to trying it
