For one day only Nunhead is host to the Edible Flower Garden & Apothecary Bar, where you can taste everything from naturally growing chocolate mint leaves to cocktails made from Jasmine and Honeysuckle!
Fantasy High Street is delighted to return to Nunhead in 2014 and work in partnership with AG Flowers to organise this very special garden installation! We’ll be running tours of the garden from 2-8pm where performers will guide you in and amongst the plants to pick petals right from the flowers to taste them. You’ll be able to learn everything you need to know about cooking and eating edible flowers, from which ones are safe right through to creating your own recipes! We promise you’ll look at flowers in a whole new way - and will experience new flavours to satisfy even the most adventurous culinary appetite!
We have limited spaces for our tours, so book a ticket in advance to avoid disappointment on the day. Prices are £10 / £6 concs and include a free cocktail.
From 1pm-11pm we’ll also have our Apothecary Bar open for business. Come and enjoy a cocktail al fresco in our pop-up garden, and watch as the bartender creates colourful, tasty drinks with herbs and petals grown right out of our planters - drinking mojitos never tasted so fresh! Perfect to enjoy on a mid-summer evening.
Special ‘Floral Cuisine’ workshop: 1pm-1:45pm. Learn how to add a splash of natural colour to simple home recipes with the inclusion of edible flowers, led by an expert in edible flower food creations - Sushma Windsor of Lettuce Flowers. Limited tickets available and only £5 each, ensure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
