We are starting to have a glut of zucchini – courgettes in the garden. If you grow them, you will know what happens here. Everything in the garden looks lovely, you have plants with lots of baby courgettes growing nicely and everything is looking fine and dandy. Then one morning you come out and overnight they have grown into monsters. Enormous courges threatening to take over the whole garden.
You may think that huge courgettes are a bonus, but they get pretty tasteless after a certain size. So the trick is to pick them quickly and cook them. But how to prepare them, should you spiralize, grate, slice or chop? Then how to cook; fry, steam, bake? And then what recipe?
