Mish Delish Good Food Blog

I’m a professional food stylist and currently prepping my own series of cookbooks and a cooking show. In my food catering business, Mishka La Mushka, I catered private and corporate functions and events big and small, designed food in hat boxes for the Spring Racing Carnival and created too many themed kids birthday parties to mention. But now I love food styling and sharing my fun food ideas with mums wanting to create restaurant-quality meals at home, for kids and family. So let’s get cooking!

On Tuesday 31 August, 7 September and 14 September at 11:00am, I will doing some ‘Spring inspired’ cooking demonstrations at the Prahran Market. All my recipes are tried and tested on fussy kids and should inspire you with some new dinner ideas to try out on your family and friends.

First up, I’ll be making these delicious Zucchini, Ricotta, Chive and Mint fritters. If you live locally, come and see me make this dish, and have a taste too.

See you there!

You'll Need

  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 20g butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • sea salt & cracked pepper
  • 2 small to medium zucchini, grated or julienned with a mandolin
  • 2 tbs ricotta, crumbled
  • 1 tbs chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs mint, finely chopped
  • olive oil

Method

Place the flour, eggs, butter, milk and salt & pepper to taste in a large bowl and whisk to combine.

Fold through the zucchini, ricotta and chives.

Heat 2 tbs of olive oil in a non stick fry pan and gently spoon in mixture. Gently flatten with the back of the spoon, so they cook evenly. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until golden.

Keep them warm in a low oven.
