April Showers and Edible Flowers

Slide6

Our last post featuring an image of the beautiful burrata mozzarella from our Spring menu got so much attention – we just had to dedicate a post to a little detail that Tim thinks will be a BIG trend on the table for Spring: Edible Flowers.

Not only do edible flowers bring an element of freshness and an extra pop of color to a plate, they also offer subtle flavor enhancements ranging from sweet to peppery depending on the particular petal.

Tim’s tip for giving this trend a try – keep it monochromatic.  The addition of edible flowers should complement, not commandeer, your culinary creation.

Note: Not all flowers, or all parts of flowers, are edible.  Please research before giving this one a whirl.
