"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Grandma loved cooking with zucchini and was always finding new and creative ways to use it. Her garden in the summers would always be full of zucchini. You will find several recipes in this book from Grandma that were zucchini based. She was one good cook!
