Rose Petals

IMG_7587This weekend I’m working on several menus for upcoming events.  It’s a bit rainy out, keeping the grasses growing, and the flowers blooming!  For the island’s Annual Summer Soiree & Art Auction, we’re having a Moroccan themed dinner. Looking out the office window, the view is full of wild roses, in all sorts of shades of pink.

Dried rose petals are often used in North African spice mixtures, but are lovely as a traditional garnish for salads and for topping other dishes.  These ones have ample time to dry before the event in August, and will retain their beautiful colour, giving their dishes a little something extra.
