Flowers and herbs contribute more than beauty, they contribute subtle and sometimes powerful flavour though, when cooked most lose potency. The culinary and medicinal use of edible wildflowers is broad and goes back eons . Many societies also adorned certain dishes with flowers and or herbs to peak interest and add flavour. The Greeks were known to add violets to their wine, Persians put orange blossoms to good use when making food; the Romans cooked with rose petals, as did the Ottomans; can you imagine Turkish delight without it? A Victorian era salad was considered incomplete without primrose, Borage, Nasturtium or Violet flowers. Today the culinary uses for herbs are well known, we use small amounts on our shortbreads, mostly for their decorative effects.
