« Playing around with vegetables, part I: yellow tomato salad | Main | Let's play... »

Gorgeous! And how about a chocolate stuffed zucchini? Clotilde would like that, no?



wow, that looks and sounds delicious! I saw something here recently which looked like round zucchine to me, but they turned out to be some squash-like creature, with the skin far too thick and hard to be eaten this way... but I'll keep on searching, I'm bound to find them somewhere!


Pim, that's actually a great idea. Soon on these screens, if I manage to find round zucchini again.

Johanna: maybe at Tesco's ;-))


These look fantastic! I am also a great fan of stuffing things - and it's seldom as fiddly as you would imagine. The round zucchini look like gem squash - probably what Johanna saw - but she is right: you have to find very young gemsquash for their skin ever to cook to a soft, edible consistency. However, gem squash are a joy all of their own to stuff - my husband wooed me by cooking stuffed gem squash with bolognaise-style mince, fresh basil and cheese. Yum!


never had gem squash: a new vegetable to look out for! Thanks for the tip. BTW I didn't use stuffed gem squashes, but charmed my wife with food too... nice to know I'm not the only one :-)
