It's not often that a book is beautiful enough to be a coffee table book but is also a functional cookbook and a resource/guide book to boot. Enter, Edible Flowers by Monica Nelson. We loved learning which flowers we could eat (and the circumstances under which we shouldn't eat them - even if they were technically edible). Bring this book home with you and forage blooms for pasta, ice cream, risotto, or a simple cultured butter. Monica Nelson has encouraged us to see blooms in a completely new light.
