The Ingredient: Zucchini
I had a learning experience when I chose this as the next ingredient. A friend emailed me asking if I knew any recipes that used squash. I said, I was clueless, but would like to feature squash as the next ingredient to throw in the crock.
Tiffany needed to know what type of squash we wanted to use so I Googledit, and discovered the squash family is a lot bigger than I thought! I had no idea cucumbers and zucchini were considered a squash.
I have cooked zucchini so many differnet ways: grilled, sauteed and baked. I cannot wait to see how it cooks in the crock!
A few changes have taken place during the Chefs intermission, including the relocation of Chef Tiffany back to New Smyrna Beach, FL. The challenge will stay the same and the Chefs will still be cooking separately, each of them creating a masterpiece in their kitchens by the beach.
