Editorial Reviews


Can you have a lovely garden and eat it, too? That's an increasingly frequent landscaping question these days, as more homeowners request garden plants that are both edible and ornamental. And the answer, in short, is yes. With a basic knowledge of edible plants and guidelines on what van safely be eaten, it isn't necessary to choose between flowers and food because you can install ornamentals that will double as incredible edible plants. Edible ornamental landscapes have gained tremendous popularity in the past three decades, fueled by a handful of popular books..."Edible Flowers: Desserts and Drinks" offers innovative ways to design and prepare edible flowers. --The Washington Post (September 19, 2009) "Green Scene" by Joel M. Lerner, APLD

More About the Author

Cathy Wilkinson Barash was born on Long Island, New York in 1949 and spent much of her life there. She is a life-long organic gardener. From childhood she has held firm a belief in economy of space and time in the garden mainly by planting edibles among ornamentals, "so many fruits, vegetables, and herbs are beautiful themselves"--instead of relegating them to the back 40. Anne Raver of The New York Times was the first to call her a "gourmet horticulturist," as she practices edible landscaping--specializing in edible flowers--and is a gourmet cook.

A freelance photographer, writer, designer, and professional speaker, Cathy is best known as the author of "Edible Flowers from Garden to Palate," which Martha Stewart described as "very excellent." Published in 1993, "Edible Flowers" was nominated for a Julia Child Cookbook Award and garnered an Award of Excellence from the Garden Writers Association.
