Serious Eats, one of my favorite food blogs, has started a new column called “The Crisper Whisperer”. Writer Carolyn Cope, a member of a CSA someplace, kicks it off with a bang with piece on zucchini, which she dubs “the Brangelina of seasonal produce”. Not up enough on your celebrity news to catch the dig at the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie household? Cope clarifies: “It reproduces like mad and is inherently and unabashedly plural.”
She caps off the good writing with a recipe for zucchini-corn pancakes, which were a big hit tonight at dinner. She calls them “fritters”, but that makes them sound deep-fried, when I only used a coating of oil in a sautee pan. Oh, and because I didn’t have any cilantro handy, I used some of the Week 12 garlic chives. I liked the taste, but I’ll try the cilantro the next time.
