Home Kitchen Garden: botany, cuisine, lifestyle

Home Kitchen Garden is an open dialogue between cuisine and a possible urban vegetable garden,where lifestyle and taste intermingle. Starting from the beauty of an edible flower of some specific horticultural, spontaneous and floral varieties which can be grown in small urban spaces — on the windowsill, on the balconies and terraces or in a small garden – Sandra Longinotti offers a wider overview on each flower.Growing techniques, recipes, small living ideas,curiosities and practical information follow the initialpresentation of lavender, rose, artichoke, onion,borage, spilanthes oleracea, rosemary, nasturtium, amaranth, violet, chrysanthemum, begliuomini,bbegonia and wild fennel… The book brings double message: a cooked onion gives a special taste to a recipe, but if planted in a pot it will give a wonderful flower. Lavender is wonderful on a balcony but its flowers can also be used to scent sugar for a special dessert…
