This edible Chrysanthemum is used in many Asian cuisines; they appear in Cantonese dishes and Hong Kong cuisine in stews, casseroles, and hotpots.

The leaves are also an important ingredient in Taiwanese oyster omelettes and when young are used along with stems to flavour soup and stir-fry.
In Japan, it is used in nabemono (Japanese hot pot). Korean cookery uses the greens in soups, stews, and alone as a side dish.
In a hotpot, it is added at the last moment to the pot to avoid overcooking.
