Edible flowers - growing your own and their uses

In The Diggers Club workshop, Jocelyn will be stripping away the perceptions of edible flowers as a luxury culinary garnish and explaining how we can very simply grow these delightful floral ingredients in our own gardens and add colour and flavour to our day to day home cooking.

This will be an inspiring Root To Bloom eating; the practice of cooking with the entire plant from the root to the flower, minimizing food waste.

There are many negative beliefs around herbs and edible plants (from coriander to broccoli) going to flower. Jocelyn will be explaining how by leaving your veggie garden to go to flower allows the full course of a plant’s life and produces yet another exciting ingredient; the edible flower with intensified flavours of the parent plant.

Presented by Jocelyn Cross from Petite ingredient.
