Bon mots

"Give me a platter of choice finnan haddie, freshly cooked in its bath of water and milk, add melted butter, a slice or two of hot toast, a pot of steaming Darjeeling tea, and you may tell the butler to dispense with the caviar, truffles and nightingales' tongues."

-- Craig Claiborne (American food writer. 4 September 1920 – 22 January 2000)

    At first blush, you might be tempted to ask who's the bright spark who picked April for Zucchini Bread Day? Well, zucchini is harvested from November to May in Australia (depending on the part of Australia), with April being bumper crop time down under. In the northern hemisphere, the reason for having Zucchini Bread Day now would be to make it at a time when you can appreciate it.
