25 Ways to Make Your Kitchen Bloom: All the Edible Flower Recipes

Hello and welcome to this thing we’re doing where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week. Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Tell us what you want to put in your piehole or suggest your own recipes, and next week we’ll check in and talk about which things we made, which things we loved, and which things have changed us irreversibly as people. Last week, we ate zucchini.


It’s the time of year for flowers. Flowers in a vase! Flowers in your garden! Flowers on your Pinterest! Flowers in your hair! Flowers in your girlfriend’s hair! Flowers in your mouth?

It’s true, it’s a thing! A beautiful and delicious thing. If you’re wondering what would make that romantic picnic you have planned totally over-the-top romantic, congrats, you’ve found it. We can’t require that you eat these recipes in a garden while wearing a flower crown, but we can certainly offer extra credit if you do.

    “…where we help you figure out what you’re gonna put in your mouth this week.”

    I’m generally good with that, but I’m always open to suggestions!

    Oh wait, you mean food? Well, the above still applies. I am so gonna try a few of these. The lavender Madelines in particular look heavenly.

    I’d also love to make the flower teacup and tea that Willy Wonka had, where you drink the tea, then eat the teacup.
