Review: “Cooking With Flowers” by Miche Bacher

Sweet and Savory Recipes with Rose Petals, Lilacs, Lavender, and Other Edible Flowers


Our society has grown used to seeing flowers as merely and object to be admired, either wild or in a vase.  Thankfully, some people, such as Miche Bacher, herbalist and chef, has decided to share her knowledge and recipes for how you too can use beautiful flowers into innovative and tantalizing recipes to eat!

Each chapter is dedicated to an edible flower.  Not only does she educate us on their symbolism, but also their botanical name, seasonality, history, preparation and culinary tips for you to try when feeling creative.  She also shows you the yields for each flower.  How many should you buy when you a need a specific kitchen measurement.

As the photographer, Miana Jun shows us that the beauty of nature and the science of food do meet beautifully.  Not only do her photographs make each recipe look amazing, but it also makes you want to try them out!

Some of the amazing recipes you will find in here are: Calendula Orange Cake; Dandelion Wine; Roasted Day Lily Buds; Pink Rose Wine Cake; Elderflower Marshmallows and more!

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to trying more of the recipes!
