Description

Chive Flower

Allium schoenoprasum or chive flower. An essential ingredient in the kitchen, it has always been used and is a culinary product highly valued by chefs for the flavour it gives. Why don’t use also its edible flowers?

Indeed, the chive flower is also edible. And it brings this flavour so characteristic to culinary creations. It flowers in the shape of a head that is composed of small flowers with a star shape. The chive flower is lilac and has a small size. It must be said that it has a similar flavour to an onion.

Pairing

Because of the flavour that this edible flower provides, it should mainly be used in cooking with meats, seafood, salads, stews, soups, gourmet sauces… Obviously, with desserts and sweet products, it does not pair well.

Since the chive flower is of small dimensions, it is perfect to finish a spanish tapa and provide a very powerful flavour.
