“Bacher's informative new volume is a trusty guide and source of inspiration...”—InStyle
“Few cookbooks focus solely on edible flowers, and those that do often devote more pages to gardening and foraging than cooking. This gorgeous niche filler offers plenty of recipes, most notably visually striking desserts and unique “basics”.”—Library Journal
“I'm head over heels for this book, and I'm excited to have it in my proverbial pocket as we head into spring and summer months with all their flowery opportunities.”—Emma Christensen, TheKitchn.com
