Courgettes Pumpkins
Italian food is regional because the varieties are regional. This is typified by courgettes. We have varieties from Italy (National), Genova, Florence, Rome, Milan, Sarzana, Bologna, Piacenza, Nice, Naples, Albenga, Friuli and Sicily. There are others too, that we just can't carry them all !! Talk about provenance !!

In Italy, the flowers are always eaten as well as the zucchino. Just remove any flowers not attached to a courgette in the morning when they are open, remove the stamen and crown and wash carefully. They can then be battered and fried, stuffed or used in 'frittata'.
