32 page book -edible flower recipes
on 1 January 2012
Nice little black and white paper back booklet.
The pictures are hand drawn, mainly of the herbs. Has a few recipes for the following plants:
Basil flowers, Chamomile, Chive Blossoms, Dill flowers, Hibiscus, Lavender, Marigolds, Nasturtium, Roses and Violas.
I found a great seller of some of these dried flower products who sells here on Amazon and on their own web page which is helpful - [...]
I can't get all the flowers i wanted which are in the book so i hope to find and grow some of my own as i am sure fresh flowers will taste even better, especially for salads.
Word of caution: If you are new to this like i am, do your home work BEFORE buying seeds to grow your own plants as some have toxic verities.
I only gave three stars as the book is a lot smaller than i expected -32 pages (not all the pages have been taken up with recipes - but include the contents page, introduction etc.and 'other recommended books' from the series - this all take up the 32 pages too!) and not much else to it.
Plain boring drawn, basic pictures and nothing of the actual dishes.
Could do with more recipes too.
