When Lunch is Edible Art

Do you eat flowers? Have you dusted your plate with powdered sugar?

Each year I make a pilgrimage to the Scandinavian shop Punzel to enjoy a lunch so beautiful, it is worthy of a picture frame.

The elements of this work of art (horse-shaped "Dala" pasta, shrimp, begonias, a crepe) was completely unexpected and absolutely delicious.

What do you consider to be edible art?

I can honestly say I have never eaten a flower. Are they tasty? I consider the Imperial Grouper at Captain Anderson's to be art! It is a crab stuffed grouper and is dreamy!!
Have a great day!!

I'm still working on that one. Don't think there is anything in my garden that is edible, apart from strawberries and violets and rosepetals. Haha - I have white violets in abundance right now. Perhaps I'll add them to the salad ...
