The zucchini (pronounced /zʊˈkiːni/, plural: zucchini or zucchinis; from Italian: zucchina, plural: zucchine) or courgette plural: courgettes) is a popularly cultivated summer squash. Right now in Tuscany this is certainly the most popular and abundant veg you'll find.

So here's my list of recipes for this week's tuscan cart.

  1. Fried zucchini blossomsYou don't necessarily have to fry those blossoms alone you can add the sliced zucchini, by dipping them into the best batter and frying!
  2. Scarpaccia ( a zucchini sweet and savoury pie)
  3. You can also use the fried frittata method with zucchini of course!
  4. Zucchini Pasta Sauce
  5.  Zucchini flan with basil sauce (a recipe by Arturo Dori)
