Text by Susanna Report Brill • Photography by John O’Hagan

From East to West since historical instances, flowers, which we regularly assume of as purely ornamental, have been used as meals. There is document of the nasturtiums being eaten as early as 400 B.C. Hernán Cortés wrote of flowers being consumed in Mexico City within the 16th century. In the 18th century, roses had been a flavoring as in style as vanilla, and throughout the Victorian period, it was fairly frequent to reap and distill flowers for taste and drugs. Today, we use flowers resembling broccoli, cauliflower, and artichoke as greens. Jasmine tea is scented with recent jasmine flowers. Sambuca liqueur is made with elderflowers, and zucchini flowers are offered in Mediterranean markets. Flowers will also be used to create a singular teatime expertise. They could make a easy dish uncommon and really elegant.

There are a big selection of edible flowers: roses, tulips, Johnny-jump-ups, daylilies, impatiens, petunias, pansies, hollyhocks, and dianthus, simply to call a couple of. Additionally, all of the culinary herb blossoms, resembling chives, rosemary, sage, dill, cilantro, basil, oregano, savory, and thyme, are edible. It is vital to notice, nevertheless, that not all flowers are edible.
