Zucchine alla scapece is a classic Neapolitan recipe. I’ve been cooking a lot of them for the guests of As Soup As Possible events this summer. I even included zucchine alla scapece in a wedding catering in June, so I can safely say this is the courgette dish I’ve cooked most during summer 2017 – if not my entire life.
The whole world knows some version of Italian pizza, but not many can say they have had Neapolitan pizza fritta (deep-fried pizza). Yet this typical street food from the most popular areas of Naples seem to have an even older tradition than its oven-baked sister.
Never take the good things for granted, especially when they’re your favourite food! I lived a spoiled life in the world’s biggest artichoke garden without even knowing, until I moved to an artichoke-deprived land in 2012.
