Edible flowers are taking the culinary world by storm, and if you still haven’t fallen in love with them, it’s only because you’ve never heard of Loria Stern.
Stern is a chef and caterer who prides herself in using local, seasonal, and highest quality ingredients in all of her recipes. The passionate baker is using pressed flowers to create some of the most whimsical cookies you’ll ever see. Her creations feature herbs, edible flowers, fruits, and vegetables that she grew in her home garden.
Stern embarked on this culinary adventure because she was inspired by the romance of wild edible flowers and medicinal herbs. Her creations became a huge hit online thanks to their dreamy exterior that makes them look like they’re straight out of a Jane Austen novel.
Stern has been making edible flower cookies for years, but this creative process is still an adventure because it’s impossible to tell how flowers and herbs will bake. She doesn’t know what to expect before taking her cookies out of the oven, and the final result is always truly unique.
