Flowers for Dinner


I recently visited the BSH Design and Experience Center in Irvine, California…..will go into more detail later about the awesome appliances in this facility, but wanted to share a quick, easy and fun recipe we learned in class.

Squash Blossoms showed up in two meals, once in a  beautiful salad, and for lunch one day our group teamed up and made this unusual side dish.
***Squash blossoms are the edible flowers of the squash plant and usually come in orange and yellow shades. Squash blossoms are soft, delicate, and usually taste mildly like the squash itself.


They are so beautiful….and let’s face it, we don’t get to eat a flower everyday.
We prepared according to the directions, and we basically were spoiled by having all the ingredients
pre-measured and prepped for us…I want to cook this way all the time.

1. In Pan, heat 1/4 inch oil.
2. Dredge squash blossoms in egg wash then in flour.
3. Saute squash blossoms until lightly browned.  Turn and brown on the other side.
4. Remove to sheet pan with rack.
5. Place in warming drawer until ready to serve.
6. Arrange Sautéed Squash Blossoms on serving platters.  Garnish with lemon, parmesan cheese and flaky sea salt.

So easy, and the results were beautiful and delicious !

 Now, I don’t know how often, if ever, you will see many squash blossoms to buy, but if you do…..do yourself a favor and treat yourself or impress your friends.

I also picked up a few practical and easy ideas to incorporate into everyday cooking and food presentation….

Simply slice and sear lemons for maximum flavor and use to garnish your salad or incorporate into any dish.

Serve your salad piled up and arranged on a
large cutting board…so pretty!

Also, any meal is easier to prepare when 15 people are doing the cooking….breathtaking meals came together so fast!

The Bosch and Thermador kitchens where cooking and training took place were a great environment to see, touch and experience the state of the art appliances belonging to these two brands.

As impressive as the design center was, I realized how fortunate our customers and sales staff are to be able to show off appliances in our “live” kitchens as well.  Our showroom is unique and there is the opportunity to have a sales associate demo many of our appliances when you visit.

Another blog will go into more detail and highlight the outstanding appliances we used in the BSH Design and Experience Center.
