An inviting, beautiful cookbook with over 90 recipes for baking and cooking with flowers. For the dandelion blowers and the daisy-chain weavers, for those who love to grow flowers, enjoy good food, and feel the sunshine on their faces, this book is for you.

Many garden-variety flowers are not only lovely to look at, they’re also unique additions to any meal. Curious to learn how? Just ask Nikki Fotheringham—gardener, home cook, and forager—who grows flowers in the meadow behind her house and turns them into edible products that she sells in her farm store. With Taste Buds, Nikki will teach you how to make your meals as dazzling on the plate as they are in the field, whether you’re interested in baked goods like a Lemon Elderflower Cake, preserves like a rose petal jam (perfect on scones or alongside a charcuterie board), savory dishes like Flower Pasta with Marigold Pesto, or wildflower drinks like the Lavender Love Martini. Inside, you’ll find:

Over 90 Recipes Featuring Flowers: Each one highlights the natural flavors of your flowers, all organized in stunning color-coded chapters.

A Guide to 15 Flower Varieties: Learn to identify and forage different flowers, from well-known favorites like hibiscus, lavender, peonies, and roses, to unexpected novelties like sumac, cornflowers, cattails, and more.

Tips and Tricks for Growing Flowers: Make sure your garden sets you up for success in the kitchen, with plenty of info on how to care for your plants.

Whether you’re an avid gardener, a lover of food hoping to up your kitchen game, or someone who simply adores natural beauty, you’re sure to delight in Taste Buds as you cook through these recipes or simply flip through its aspirational pages.
