We arrived at the Chelsea Flower Show around one oclock and therefore decided to try out the fast food at Petal Pushers to the right of the main entrance. As we stood in line, we read from the long menu above us, Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms, Lemon Flower Pancakes, Corn Marigold Fritters
We were decided
when we got to the counter, and the young cashier looked expectantly to us as he waved away with a practiced hand some bees buzzing over some bloom bits. Ill take a Squash Blossom Frittata, a Sage Flower Crepes, Candied Angelica Flowers and a Bud, I spoke up with trepidation.
Is that a Bud Beer? A Rose Bud Beer? he countered, OK, and for the young lady?
Yes, Id like an order of Fried Pumpkin Flowers, a Lavender Rose Petal Cheesecake, the medium Dandelion Wine and the Mixed Bride Bouquet, she answered romantically.
Do you want that bouquet in a pot or cut? the cashier asked and then turned his head towards the kitchen shouting, Henri, thats one curcurbit pepo frittata, a crepes salvia officinalis, candied angelica archangelica, a rosa corymbifera lager, one fried cucurbita moschata, a lavendula x intermedia - rosa villosa cake, a taraxacum officinalis year 96 and a wedding salad in a vase.
On our way to the outside tables we picked up cutlery including pruners and packets of Sage Flower Pesto, Mustard Flower Sauce and some Crystallized Violets. We sat enjoying our fare, with humming birds whirring around us, and observed the people entering the flower show who were only going to look at the blooms.

Description (displayed with the short name and URL.)
||Such floral prose deserves a bouquet of croissants
||Brilliant, Farmer. Of course, this type of food is baked (I made dandelion pancakes last week), but a restaurant or fast food chain with these types of foods catering to the flower children/earth children would certainly be a new idea. Violets are especially tasty....
||Have a daisy patch croissant.
||//Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms//
||Shirley it would be "Stuffed Corgette Blossoms" in Chelsea? (or whatever Zucchini are called over here)..
||"Well no Doc, she didn't seem dangerous, but she was in the middle of the rose exhibit, ripping out the petals, mumbling, 'He loves me not,' and 'bloody red...buns...' "
||Get servers who speak well. I want my heap o' greens hoisted onto the table, and I'm clear when I ask for a neat fingerbowl. There will be, and I think I'm being reasonable, a chef's salad offered; don't tempt me to go for seconds coarse.
