“So delicious. Such elegance for minimal work! Restaurant beautiful. Looking forward to summer just for this! Number of servings depends on your garden! Herbs can be dry or fresh; use what YOU like! Prep time depends on how long it takes to pick the flowers. Be sure there are no little critters in the flowers. The cheese can be Boursin or Rondele'. I'm going to try goat cheese this year. It IS kind of a fiddly recipe. But it's so pretty. And it really doesn't take THAT long! This lends itself to all sorts of substitutes for cheese, vinaigrette and herbs, just whatever you like. From Jeremiah Tower's New American Classics.”
