We love squash blossoms aka zucchini flowers.  They have a mild zucchini-like flavor and are perfectly suited for stuffing with herbs and cheese and frying to sizzling perfection.  They are bright and beautiful reminders to enjoy the glory of summer produce before the days get cooler.  Prep is easy, but you need to know a few simple steps to make the most of these guys.  Learn the technique with Mario LaPosta, executive chef and pizzaiolo at Babbo Boston.
