Support, guidance & advice for todays primary carers
You might think of zucchini as an afterthought but I find them invaluable. They are so easy to grow and embarrassingly abundant but do pick them when they’re small to get them at their very best. They are grilled here (and have a great flavour because of it), but if you slice freshly picked zucchini very thinly you can serve it raw with exactly the same vinaigrette.
