Feast, celebrate and bring people together with over 50 recipes for small plates, mains, desserts, baking, snacks and drinks, at once fresh and flavourful and absolutely stunning to serve.

"Cooking (and especially baking) with flowers is increasingly trendy, and this is a solid introduction to the topic." –Publishers Weekly
"These chefs see rose petals as a perfect ingredient for a summer berry pavlova, lavender as an enhancement for slow-roasted lamb, geranium as the essence of a sweet sorbet, and marigolds as punctuation for a classic Irish soda bread." –Vogue
