More About the Author

Denise Schreiber has a rich and varied background in gardening. The granddaughter of Italian immigrant farmers, she has been in the garden since she was 5, harvesting the abundant produce of the family garden. After working at various jobs, she became involved again with horticulture, including going back to school for a degree in floriculture. During a magical trip to the gardens of England and Wales, she discovered rose petal ice cream which she now considers food of the gods. Searching for more edible flower recipes upon her return home, she began a sold out edible flowers food fest in Pittsburgh which is now in it's 12th year with attendees from many states.Each year she adds new recipes to the inventory. In 2010 she began to write "Eat Your Roses" and Pansies, Lavender and 49 other delicious flowers.

Part botanical guide, part cookbook, this terrific spiral-bound book opens with all-important rules for eating edible flowers, which ones not to eat, and how to gather and prepare flowers. Once that bit of housekeeping is out of the way, Denise leads readers with a practiced and sure voice through the universe of edible flowers, one at a time. Plants are arranged by common name, and for each there is a description, its predominant taste or smell, how it can be used, any cautions about eating the plant,and a beautiful photograph. Many of the plants mentioned can be grown in your garden, and Denise provides cultural requirements as well. The second half of the book is devoted to tempting recipes that Denise has tested, refined, and served at the edible flowers festival she hosts each year.

This is a fun, interesting, and easy to use book that will make you want to go out in your garden, snip some flowers, and take them back to the kitchen to whip up something unique and delicious. Makes a great gift for gardeners and cooks alike.

Eat Your Roses: ...Pansies, Lavender, and 49 Other Delicious Edible Flowers
small book, spiral bound to lay flat with fifty two pages of: per page identification of edible flower plants - the following info on each page:
_botanical Latin name
_photo of plants edible flower
_description of plant
_sense appeal: description of color, texture, flavor and odor of each plant's flower
_uses: of flower's specific parts
...alphabetically listed from anise hyssop to yucca.
Excellent photos of each flower and recipe.
Many tips specific to each flower. example: "tulip flowers are mainly used as a stuffing container to hold dishes such as chicken salad or lemon curd."

About thirty recipes are not always fresh whole food rather including pre-processed mixes and products such as: cool whip, jell-o, and biscuit mixes. Although if you are looking for healthier versions these recipes are simple and will be easy to adapt. Also includes: herbal sugars, butters and syrups.

the author is a founder of the annual JULY PITTSBURGH EDIBLE FLOWERS FOOD FEST.

Gardening is a source of endless pleasure, and with this book Denise introduces us to still another way to enjoy those flowers. "Eat Your Roses" goes way beyond dandelion wine and sauteed daylily blossoms. After certain ground rules ("do not eat flowers picked from the side of the road", )a list of toxic flowers (azaleas, hydrangeas, morning glories, etc.), and instructions for gathering and preparing flowers, Denise gives us an illustrated A to Z of edible flowers. Then comes a range of recipes. There are plenty of tips and detailed directions.

New to cooking with edible flowers and this book is a great help. It provides concise yet specific information, easy to follow instructions and recipes, and beautiful illustrations on every page. In fact, the cover is so appealing that I keep the book displayed on my kitchen counter. I made the edible flower cream cheese spread and rose petal ice cream for a local fundraiser and got thumbs up from the attendees. The book would make a great hostess gift.

There are so many recipes, I cannot wait to try some (and eventually all) of them!
It's nice that it includes a 'resources' page for those of us without the time/space to grow our own.

I love this little, powerhouse of a book! Not only are the photographs fabulous, but the book is spiral bound for easy use and the explanations for flower use sensible. Why use roses?
This book explains why. Who eats flowers? This book explains how your garden tastes translate into delicious and talk-worthy delights. It also, very wisely, goes over the "Rules for
eating edible flowers" and "What flowers are NOT edible." One wouldn't want a dining guest to go wobbly on you! I found Denise Schreiber's book to be a terrific gift to garden lovers as well as those who want to dine a bit on the "wild" side. In the middle of winter, it is a refreshing reminder of the joys of planting, growing and soon, eating season.

I received this book as a gift from the author. She is a fantastic gardener and a wonderful cook. These recipes were all made in quantities to serve 200 people and they turned out to be perfect. My favorite is the Oriental Broccoli Salad which, with the addition of a little chicken, becomes a main dish. Take a look a the pictures and you will see why this book is a winner.
