Chicken liver and courgettes "frittata"

Florentines have a very special weakness for offals and, even if you’re not an offal fan, in Florence you can easily go crazy for a lampredotto sandwich or a chicken liver "crostino". There are many ways for cooking giblets and Chiara Brandi, a Florentine food blogger, gives us her family recipe: a very special “frittata” (omelette) with courgettes and chicken livers seasoned with rosemary and sage.
