I’ve been collecting images of floral edibles on Pinterest for some time.
What exactly are floral edibles? They are basically any dish, drink or food that is infused with flowers. The flowers become a main part of the dish, not just used as a garnish. Normal everyday meals can be taken to a whole new creatively gourmet level by “cooking with flowers” once the flowers are edible and readily available.
Think, for example, carrot cake with lavender cream cheese, or simple sugar syrups infused with sorrel and geranium leaves, poached pears soaked in jasmine tea, chamomile cookies, rose petal & cardamom cocktails, plain sponge cake with an elderflower glaze…..
