Have you ever eaten calendulas in your cornbread, dandelion muffins, or lilac sorbet in tulip cups? Sure to attract attention, more than 100 sweet and savory treats made from these recipes containing edible flowers are the inventions of Miche Bacher, herbalist, chef, and founder of a custom confectionary studio. Promoting the use of edible flowers, the chef introduces the reader to tasty cuisine before tracing the steps in their use, going from gathering flowers in the garden to selecting other ingredients in her recipes. The fare is introduced with eye-catching color photographs, each a delicious treat itself. —Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
