I went to Salamanca market for the first time in absolutely ages yesterday, mostly I was after some tulips but they didn't have any so I got snap dragons instead. I would have loved the poppies but they just make me a bit hayfeverish.
The exciting find was zucchini flowers! I had some in Melbourne many years ago and they were fantastic and I have wanted to re-create that ever since. I did get some flowers from a friend last weekend but was lazy and left them out and they went all limp. So tonight I cooked them properly, stuffed with goats cheese, ricotta, basil and fresh grated nutmeg and a light tempura batter, and I was pleased with the way they turned out, nearly the same as my memory.
