When i was first asked to source Roman Courgettes it took the best part of a year.
Back then we didn't have emails and camera phones to send messages to Italy so we relied on descriptions which often resulted in something different being sent to us. When i finally did receive my first batch of “Nostrale” i remember personally delivering them to the chef only to find that another greengrocer had pinched two boxes from my stash and delivered them to the same chef only a few moments earlier, thus leaving me a little red faced. Even now it brings a smile to my face when they first come in to season.
