Can you help my amazing coach?

My dissertation coach is a foodie just like us! She is trying to convince the meat-eating lovers of Argentina to eat more fresh food and veggies. Gayle is an amazing cook and does incredible things with herbs and flowers. Slow Food, the organization she is preparing a special menu for looks like a fantastic organization too. She probably doesn't need any help, but if you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments! Here is her original request:



I really am doing my part to convince these beef-crazy folks to eat more vegggies!!! Last night I fixed a wonderful pumpkin-tomato soup (pureed) with a touch of honey from a cook book by Crescent Dragonwagon. . . yummy!!! And I convinced the organizer of the new Slow Food Chapter in Rosario to let me plan a menu (since the last two had nothing fresh or green!!!). . . and it will be a dinner with flowers in every thing. . . an international chef at the most prestigious hotel and I will be selecting the dishes...I've got one books specifically on flowers in the kitchen plus lots of herbals....if you have any tips or recipes, I'll take them!

p.s. I already directed her to the zucchini flower recipe below!
