You are what you eat.
Nothing says “I love you” like a bouquet of flowers, but what more if it’s placed on a silver platter with your favorite food?
Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they’re also organic (obviously) and healthy! These dishes have edible flowers that provide a unique taste, aroma, and a different look to your food. From salads to cakes (yes, it’s possible!), here are some of what you can try for yourselves for Valentine’s Day, and don’t forget to give your partner flowers, whether in hand or on a plate!
