July 20: Scarpaccia Tuscan Zucchini Tart Class

July 20: Scarpaccia Tuscan Zucchini Tart Class

Join us for this class on: Saturday, July 20

10:30am PT / 1:30pm ET / 7:30pm Italy

Scarpaccia is a thin, crispy, savory tart that celebrates one of the most affordable and abundant vegetables of the season: zucchini. Originating from Camaiore, in the Versilia region, Scarpaccia is a recipe of peasant origin, a testament to the culinary traditions of this area of Tuscany.

There are two versions of Scarpaccia, sweet and savory, depending on the family tradition and the specific part of Versilia. Despite its resemblance to a classic frittata, Scarpaccia is actually a vegan recipe, without the use of any eggs or cheese.

Thinly sliced zucchini and onions are mixed in a creamy batter made with a combination of chickpea flour and regular flour. Baked to perfection, Scarpaccia features a crispy texture on the surface, and a tasty filling inside.

Perfect for summer nights, whether enjoyed as an appetizer or a main course accompanied by your favorite salad, Scarpaccia embodies the essence of simplicity and taste, reflecting the rustic charm of the Tuscan countryside. Give it a try, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy every bite all summer long.
