    such a lovely, lovely theme… I need to be more adventurous than Orange Blossom Honey as that’s a favourite so i will expand my horizons this time! xx

    Hi Karen – when I was studying at culinary school we were lucky to have a constant supply of edible flowers from ouramazing local husbandry school. One of the first things we learned was how just a few could make a boring salad spring to life not to mention that they could make just about any kitchen disaster look like a michelin starred work of art… Great June challenge, really looking forward to see what everybody comes up with!
