Floristaurante is an art project based on the importance of eating flowers. In short, a restaurant of flowers. The edible installation and performance were presented for the first time in a context of the market Boqueria in Barcelona in the frame of Antoni Miralda´s project Food Cultura.

Benjamim embodies the role of a television personality where she examines nature/culture relations in the culinary language: A myth serving as a vehicle for explanation and mediation from the history and presence of flowers in our main meals. The artist introduces and describes the edible flowers in a menu based on her own diary of everyday recipes. Marisa Benjamim wants to debunk the contemporary assumption that hunger was part of our original condition.
