In celebration of Mother’s Day we would like to share one of our favorite recipes:
Fried Zucchini Flowers
Growing up in the small rural village of Massa Lubrense (just outside of Sorrento), Chef Angelo spent countless hours in the kitchen with his mother (who is now referred to as Nonna) and his grandmother; this is where he developed his passion for food.
Chef Angelo returns to Italy as often as he can, and cherishes every moment he spends with his mother in the kitchen.
What makes the food in Italy so flavorful is the absolute freshness. It is very common for families to grow their own produce. Chef Angelo’s father, affectionately known as Gigetto, is well known for his ability to cultivate outstanding fruit and vegetables. Gigetto brings the bounty to Nonna, who expertly prepares all of the dishes.
We wish you a very HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
