Why Eat Flowers? Did you know that Brussel Sprouts were a flower? Ha! thought that would surprise you, so I think this part of the book should really be, you already eat some flowers so why not try some more? From Garden to Table: here you learn about how to gather, prepare and measure flowers so they are suitable to use for culinary purposes. After these two chapters we move straight on to the flower chapters in alphabetical order. Each chapter tells you about what the flower means in the language of flowers e.g Calendulas signify sacred affections, joy, grief and remembrance, then there is a bit of background or history of the flower, information on culinary use, seasonality, preparation and measure...... Who is this book for? This is a beautiful book, even if you never made a recipe it would be worth having just to read about and look at all the fabulous photographs. If you are interested in more adventurous cooking and would like to expand your horizons to make stunning dishes that impress the eyes and the palate, then I would recommend you get this book. Pros I learned a lot from reading Cooking with Flowers and really enjoyed all the information provided with the recipes. The amazing photography by Miana Jun is matched by the excellent styling (I couldn't find an acknowledgement for the styling) of the recipes. Cons The recipes are in US measures, there is a metric conversion chart at the back but that could be a bit of a nuisance if you don't own a set of US measuring cups. I think it would be worth buying a set just to make some of these recipes, they are not expensive and I found it easy enough to get used to using them. Worth Buying? Definitely. There is even a link to some exclusive recipes that the publisher couldn't fit into the book. Bonus recipes for the medicinal and cosmetic use of flowers and downloadable recipe cards. --Farmersgirlblogspot, June, 2013---- A comprehensive guide to ornamental edibles and how to eat them, Cooking with Flowers is the prettiest of recipe books. Brainchild of herbalist and chef Miche Bacher, it's filled with sweet and savoury dishes, fascinating facts and glorious photographs. -- --Cambridgshire Journal, Summer edition, 2013 This essential guide covers a whole host of classic and innovative uses for fresh, seasonal flowers - whether they're found locally, grown in your own garden or bought from speciality shops. The wide range of sweet and savoury recipes is divided into sections by flower and features full instructions, tips and beautiful colour photography - useful if you're planning to include flowers in your wedding breakfast. You'll also find a handy guide to gathering and preparing these diverse ingredients. -- --Wedding Cakes A Design Source , July, 2013

The recipes seem easy to follow and contain a number of recipes that would be very suitable for a range of homemade gifts and treats of the likes that your friends and family have never seen!
Buy this book - it's sure to impress.

Format: Hardcover
If you ever thought edible flowers were restricted to nasturtium, lavender and a few others, think again. This glorious book with its wow cover is full of inventive recipes using edible flowers. The recipes are very desirable and the instructions are easy to follow. Delicious celebration cakes, cookies and pies. Syrups, teas and more. I love the layout of this book. The superb photography is taken by Miana Jun who deserves a special mention, for it is truly fantastic and makes this wondrous book all the more special. Each flower is introduced with its common and botanical names and useful information such as preparation and use. The recipes are sweet and savoury, but more in the former category. Everything from borage spritzers to chamomile ice cream; hibiscus chutney to flower jellies; pansy lollipops to daylily curry. Amazing recipes, I loved them all and can't wait to try. There are no gluten free flours used in this book, but it is vegetarian except for a couple of recipes. Highly recommended - this is the best recipe book I have seen on this subject by a mile.
