Herbalist and chef Bacher, founder of Mali B Sweets (malibsweets.com), shares more than 100 recipes that feature edible flowers. Since most aren't conventionally available, readers should consult Bacher's list of sources, or consider growing their own. Be sure to read the introductory chapters, where Bacher lists important caveats and discloses that her recipes use European-style butter (American-style butter, which has a higher water content, may affect results). VERDICT Few cookbooks focus solely on edible flowers, and those that do often devote more pages to gardening and foraging than cooking. This gorgeous niche filler offers plenty of recipes, most notably visually striking desserts and unique "basics" (e.g., jams, butters, teas, and frostings).
Alongside every recipe are tips and tricks for finding, cleaning, and preparing edible blossoms. You’ll also learn how to infuse vinegars, vodkas, sugars, frostings, jellies and jams, ice creams, and more with the color and flavor of your favorite flowers. Fresh from the farmers’ market or plucked from your very own garden, a world of delectable flowers awaits!
Bacher's informative new volume is a trusty guide and source of inspiration...”—InStyle
