Edible Flowers at Ecco

fresh violets

I love this idea of a communal table with dishes celebrating what is blooming. Violets dot my yard and I look forward to candying them for topping cupcakes. Chef Craig Richards of Ecco is going to color a wood-fired pizza with his this Sunday. I can't wait to see the local lettuce and flower salad!

From Fifth Group:
April showers bring edible flowers to the communal table at Ecco's next Sunday Share dinner on April 1 at 6:30pm. Executive Chef Craig Richards will explore the many ways in which flowers can not only add delicious flavor, but amazing color, to many dishes. For example, lovely wild violets  are set to make their debut on a whole wheat wood-fire pizza with mozzarella and chive flower pesto. Other menu items include local lettuce and flower salad with orange blossom honey vinaigrette; roasted lamb sirloin with rosehip jam; leek, basil and pesto soup with anise hyssop; paprika-roasted game hens with fennel and rosemary; and a lovely lemon verbena ice cream.
