"courgette" is, in fact, the French word for "zucchini", and there are many, many French culinary words used in recipes and culinary techniques and ingredients - but you already know that!

Sorry, I got carried away. We call 'em courgettes like the French- dunno why. I first came across them in the writings of Elizabeth David and then in our local greengrocers who also called them by the "c" word.

in any case, enough with the nit-picking.
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

Wow......Charlie ........I'm jealous.........wished that I had that problem as I love summer squash/courgettes.......how about including them in any of the Russian meat pirogues......excuse the spellings...that is, shredded......certainly would add to the vegetable/vitamin levels.......and then for this Texas gal, a few shakes of tabasco.........got to have zest..........:)
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
