Stuffed Zucchini Flowers

My friend Jenna is one lucky woman, she is married to a chef. (Don’t worry G, I am not complaining, I am a lucky woman as well!) So, Jenna’s husband can cook. Seriously cook. They share their culinary adventures on their blog called Sweet Fine Day. Check out this Stuffed Zucchini Flower post. Mouthwatering, no? This is one of these dishes that reminds me of my vacations in South of France as a kid. And it also reminds me that there are certain dishes that I’d never dare to try myself. Why? I don’t know. But the thought of cooking Stuffed Zucchini Flowers is intimidating, at least to me. Hat tip to Mark! And to Jenna for the beautiful photographs!

  1. in the movie— I am Love— they apparently eat “pea cream” with “courgette” flowers.. but they do not look like typical zucchini flowers. I wonder what they are? they are purple.

  3. Tina, ha! I jut saw this. thank you…and next time we make stuffed flowers, which granted could may not be for another year :( as their season is so so very short, we’ll make sure to invite you over!

  4. my mum cooks this often since is a traditional dish in Cyprus. The smell of it and the taste of it is so unbelievable, especially if you grow the zucchini yourself…. must tell her to make it..

  5. oh, I see another Cypriot beat me to it…
    we stuff these things with rice and minced meat, herbs and vegetables and they’re simply scrumptious!

    Try to fry them after dipping them in a mix of flour and water..

  6. i LOVE stuffed zucchini flowers. YUM.
