Fritelle di Zucchini

Fritelle are bite-size puffs made with basil, squash flowers or sage leaves that are flash-fried and dusted with sea salt.  The anonymous fourteenth century Venetian cookery book Libro per cuoco has an important-sounding recipe called fritelle da imperadore magnifici, the magnificent emperor's fritters, that  are similar to today's recipes.  In the fourteenth century, these little beauties, were stuffed with fresh cheese.  Fritelle continued to be made always during the summer months served with cold white wine.
