The humble courgette, or zucchini, depending where you come from, is such a versatile vegetable. Inspired by Elizabeth David’s recipe for stewing them in butter and mixing the resulting purée with white sauce and rice and browned in the oven from her book An Omelette and a glass of wine and Darina Allens’ simple salad with olive oil and sea salt, I have created a companion to Beetroot my best selling first vegetable book.
In Courgette I have used ideas based around technique and incorporated other ingredients which are also in season at the same time. For when does one need a book with 30 courgette recipes most? When there is a glut in the garden or they are cheap in the shops or make up half your veg box! Within these pages are recipes for all types and colours of courgettes, in cakes, soups, muffins, in salads, roulades, tarts and tians.
There are buying and storing tips, and nutritional information. Each recipe is accompanied by a superb photograph taken by my wife Caroline, who manages to make my simple recipes look wonderful! So whatever you do with a courgette, eat raw, slice, steam, fry or bake, there are recipes here for every occasion. Please always buy local, support your local greengrocer or farmshop and don’t waste any
