The fried zucchini flowers are for me a dish that you can enjoy as a privileged ! Because yes, you have the chance to have a nice garden with beautiful plants of zucchini, then there is no problem, either you have not (like me !) and then we need to find a producer who has ! And this time it is an Italian producer on the market of Briancon, where we were the weekend, which had beautiful flowers females with pretty zucchini hanging at the end. Good and then like I found these flowers so pretty and they made me were the arms (if, if !!!) well, I have allowed myself to be tempted by donuts (yes I’m a weak girl !). I am very, but then very rarely fry food, I had already fallen for falafel a few months ago.

And as I wanted to share with you these pretty flowers, I have shot in a place that is not my living room, with nothing like material and a different light then I do not want to stage more than clean !!! Go, I leave you in the company of the recipe.
