herbs and flowers : banana blossom event roundup

Hello everyone,

I am extremely pleased to announce the roundup of the exclusive event; herbs and flowers in which we chose banana blossom as the star ingredient. We have received a handful entries for this event but believe me you will love these as all of them are so good and exclusive. It will definitely give you an idea to experiment more with the banana blossom and some have described at length how to prepare these before using in a recipe.

So enjoy the roundup !
