I made a giant Salamagundi for a museum dinner once. Threw in everything but the kitchen sink, but the crowning touch was when we garnished it with edible flowers from the kitchen garden--nasturtiums and chive blossoms, if memory serves.

I'm impressed! Henry Howard's book England's Newest way in all Sorts of Cookery , etc. mentions a receipt (definitely not for the ordinary folk!):

'How to dish up a Dish of Fruits with preserved Flowers - Take a large Dish, cover it with another of the same bigness, and place the uppermost over with Paste of Almonds, inlaid with red, white, blue and green Marmalade in the figure of Flowers and Banks; then take the branches of candied Flowers, and fix them upright in Order, and upon little Bushes erected, and covered with Paste: Fix your preserved and Candied Cherries, Plumbs, Pease, Apples, Gooseberries, Currans, and the like, each in their proper place; and for Leaves, you may use Coloured Paste or Wax, Parchment, or Horn; and this, especially in Winter, will be very proper.'

Henry Howard and Patrick Lamb, Esq. (who wrote Royal Cookery, or the Complete Court Cook) were Master Cook nearly 50 years to their late Majesties King Charles II, King James II, King William and Queen Mary, and to "Her present Majesty Queen Anne."

Again, these receipts (recipes) were definitely not for the lesser folk! -Shay of the Keys

Mission had lots of help. Mission probably would have fell flat on his hat without all the help. (A nod of thanks to Connie, Captain Sophia, M.A. d'Dogge and Miles.)

I posted the info for this on my website in one of the hidden "Easter Egg" pages for the PiP '08 Surgeon's Journal. You can see it here.
