Linda Brennan is a horticulturist, eco botanist, environmental educator and passionate greenthumb goddess. This spring she will bring a new dimension to your kitchen with her new book on edible flowers, A Delicious Bunch. This delightful book is the culmination of Linda’s lifetime of growing, tasting and cooking with the most delicious food and flowers, both home grown and foraged.
With easy organic growing guidelines to suit all climates and gardening abilities, this book is part gardening guide, part cookbook. It includes information on over thirty of the most treasured and exotic edible flowers. Complete with growing notes and lavish photography, A Delicious Bunch features a range of flowers to grace your garden and menu.
For the foodie, there are easy to follow recipes for each flower that celebrate the flavours, fragrance and aesthetics of that bloom. Some recipes are family favourites, some have been shared by friends and others are sensory delights that tickle the taste buds. The book includes recipes for delicious drinks, stunning cakes and spectacular main dishes, all featuring edible flowers.
From garden trowel to kitchen fork, Linda shows how to bring edible flowers into your garden and then on to your plate to create beautiful dishes.
Linda Brennan spent her childhood wandering the bush with her parents, picking wild foods, harvesting honey and growing a huge variety of vegies and fruit in the family garden in Gippsland, Victoria. Her outdoor childhood helped to sow the seeds of a love of nature and the potential for productive gardens.
As an adult, she progressed from a career in midwifery into the equally nurturing field of horticulture, especially organic food, permaculture and education. She has taught at TAFE and Universities in undergraduate and postgraduate degrees around food, environment, horticulture and sustainability.
Linda has facilitated workshops for adults and children for over 2 decades. The unique program for primary schools that she developed, implements the National Science Curriculum through edible gardens.
