Home Kitchen Garden << Back

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 fl 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 initial presentation of lavender, rose, artichoke, onion, borage, spilanthes oleracea, rosemary, nasturtium, amaranth, violet, chrysan- themum, begliuomini, begonia and wild fennel... The book brings an ambivalent message: a cooked onion gives a special taste to a recipe, but if planted in a pot it will give wonderful flowers.  Lavender is wonderful on a balcony but its flowers can also be used to scent sugar for a special dessert...
