The Seed of a Dream
This is my husband Rick in 2012. We were out to dinner and this flower was on the table and they were so cute. I think he had just told me that if he had a garden he could plant edible flowers and this was the seed of a dream.

Fast forward 10 years later and Rick and I are experimenting with flower varieties that have edible blooms. We use the following flowers as a food source at Mezzacello;
I am very much amused that this memory came up this week. If you had asked me back the that Mezzacello would have existed I would have doubted it. If you asked me that we would be tirelessly experimental with food sources I would be surprised. And if you told me that I would be posting recipes for these flowers, well that would be a delight.
And it has been a delight.
