Sometimes zucchinis (courgettes) can be hit and miss. An then there are all these theories that it's best to sweat them with salt before cooking and all sorts of hassle.
But we can now exclusively reveal: it's all super easy.
What you need:
- 4 zucchinis - small is best, we love the pale green ones.
- butter to fry
Split the zucchinis in half, long ways, and fry them, medium high heat, for 3 minutes each side (flat side down first, and then the skin side). Place the fried zucchinis in a bowl when done. You might need to...

His works are intuitively thought provoking and still deceptively easy on the eye.
We're excited to watch his career develop, and see which direction he will take.
TRON is a 1982 sci-fi classic that visualised a man's journey into a computer. The film baffles and inspires in equal measure. We love it because of its extremely free way of visualising the world.

Milk hinders this process somewhat, and is more likely to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Don't think you're getting away with a...
