A ten star recipe. Wow, cooked this for a total of 27 people Thursday Evening at an organization that I belong to. I cook one meal a month for them. This was awesome. I ran out of Edible Flowers. ( I have a big tree) Made it precisely according to recipe and it was simply devine. Beautiful Tasty and very refreshing. I used an old bag of beans to keep them upright in a bowl for serving purposes. Just stuck them into the beans as I filled them BINGO, PERFECT PLATING. Chef Angela Marie
