When I was learning to cook we were lucky to have a constant supply of edible flowers from the amazing husbandry school in Devon. One of the first things we learned was how just a few of these little gems could make a boring salad spring to life - and turn just about any kitchen disaster into a michelin starred work of art!
So, when I saw that Karen over at lavenderandloveage.com and Janie at Hedgecomers.com were using edible flowers as the basis of their June tea time treats challenge I had to get involved. Take a look at my squid and chorizo salad entry or pop over to Karen's and see what other great recipes have been entered.
