It is, at last, zucchini season.
Zucchini trifolati forms the basis of many of our spring soups and sauces. We slowly cook the cut up zucchini with olive oil and garlic, frying it till it starts to lightly colour. When the zucchini is soft, we add a bit of water to scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pan, adding fresh mint, basil, and sometimes thin slices of prosciutto.
To celebrate the arrival of zucchini, Shop The River Cafe is cooking our four classic zucchini dishes.
And a stainless-steel saucepan to heat them up in—one that’s beautiful enough to bring to your table.
