Edible rose 'Nadia Zerouali' baptized

The PGR team was a guest of honor at the Lottum rose festival in the Netherlands. They had the opportunity to present their own Cookbook and to baptize another edible rose – Nadia Zerouali. This bright yellow rose has powerful citrus aroma and can be used in refreshing drinks and Mediterranean cuisine.

The baptismal ceremony took place on Saturday, 11th of August and was led by head of the festival Jan Thielen, city officials and chef Nadia Zerouali herself.

There were several workshops about edible roses held during the festival – a rose breeding workshop was held by PGR’s CEO Peter Cox, Willianne Sluiter showed people how to grow edible roses by themselves, guest Nadia Zerouali held cooking classes for everyone interested in cooking with edible roses and ice cream makers from Clevers showed the crowd how to make ice cream with PGR roses – Nadia and Renée.

Also, the Cookbook made its debut and attracted a lot of attention at the stand. People were interested to learn how to cook with roses and discover all kinds of different and interesting meals you can make using rose petals.

If you are also interested in cooking with roses, or just want to look at the recipes, you can download the Cookbook for free till the end of this month on the website, which also has more photos of the event.
