Some edible flowers have such robust flavours that they need to be paired with the right foods
or drinks in order to let those flavours sing.

Here are Nurtured in Norfolk’s list of top 10 edible flowers:
1. Oyster Leaf
As salty and fresh as it sounds. The leaves produce an incredible flavour of the sea with
definite hints of oyster, hence the name. This works very well with actual oysters or any fish
dish. Also works well with wild mushrooms and surf and turf.
2. Buzz Buttons
Prepare for a multi-sensory experience. The tongue tingling tiny petals are usually pulled off
the buttons and added to desserts, salads and cocktails, creating a completely different
dimension to any dish.
3. Velvet Coral
Stunning edible flowers from the Amaranth family. Flavoured with strong autumnal notes.
Steam boil similar to a vegetable, then use in salads or as a garnish.
4. Chop Suey
Pleasant aromatic umami flavour, with notes of celery and carrot. You can pair this with meat
dishes, but it also works very well with fish and sushi.
These vibrant flowers deliver a unique addition when decorating dishes. They are both
colourful with a delicate fragrant flavour.
With their graceful shapes and vibrant colours, these flowers are beautifully eye-catching
when used in salads or cake decorating. The petals can also be crystallised or inserted into jelly
or ice for a visually unique effect.
7. Fennel Flowers
Intense bright yellow colour with a subtle taste of liquorice. Pair with fish dishes, salads or
even sprinkled over roast potatoes.
These flowers are naturally beautiful, and come in a range of vivid colours, so they’re often
used as a stunning decoration on statement cakes, cocktails and salads.
9. Mushroom Leaf
These leaves work really well in stews, soups and salads. They contain all the flavour of
mushroom without the texture, and are packed full of vitamin C, iron and beta carotene with a
texture similar to spinach. The leaves contain a high amount of protein, so are ideal for a vegan
and vegetarian diet.
10. Ice Plant
This juicy and succulent sea herb packs a punchy flavour of salt, therefore it naturally pairs
well with fish and seafood dishes. Can be blanched to reduce the saltiness, or eaten raw.
