"This is a good, very basic recipe on how to fry zucchini. There are no frills, but it's delicious. The crust is light and fries to a golden brown. When zucchini is abundant definitely prepare a batch (or two) of these fried zucchini sticks." - The Kitchen Crew
Burrata Crostini With Roasted Tomatoes

Burrata Crostini With Roasted Tomatoes

"I decided to keep it simple and served it on some crostini with a roasted tomato and fresh basil. The burrata was really good! It was nice and soft and super creamy on the inside. It had a really subtle flavour which I found quite enjoyable. When served in the crostini the flavour of the burrata was overshadowed by the rest of the flavours but the texture really shone through as a winner." - Kevin
