There’s nothing I love more than jolly, happy Italian Chefs with delicious food….and Mario Batali is no exception. I love watching him on TV, and as I have written many a time in my blogs, I love his co-owned Italian superstore, Eataly. I also have an affinity for his Orange Clogs and he general sense of style. So I somehow came across his recipe on Food & Wine’s website for Zucchini Fritters and I was sold. Looking at them, the reminded me of Latkes, which I love, so why not make the Italian version?! They were SO easy to make…I mean literally a trained monkey could make these and not mess them up….and they came out great! The best part is, you can make them a few hours in advanced, and then just heat them up in the oven and they retain their crispiness and don’t get soggy.
