I like elder flower cordial and accacia fritters and that is it... No big fan of begonias, calendulas and tulips - in my plate...
But zucchini flowers are quite a different story!
Few things can compare with the absolute delicacy of filled zucchini flowers coated with light batter and fried to perfection! There is something almost metaphysical about them... so light and inconsistent and yet so unbearable good.
Last week in Milan, I went to a local market and came across my beloved delicacy... A feast for the eyes and palate.
Try them in the classical "Fiori Fritti" style or for a lighter version filled with a ricotta, pinoli and lemon zest filling and lightly sauteed in a pan without the batter.
