  • About

Zucchini and all the varieties in the Old and New World have always been popular. In the medieval Baghdadi cookbooks, qar’ (gourd) was used in many stew recipes, and it was often given as a substitute for eggplant, as we still do today. Zucchini make a light and delicious stew, and the fragrance they impart is wonderful even though spices are kept to the minimum.
