More about Mediterranean Frittatas

Posted by Solitary Dancer on November 13, 2007

You may remember the comment left by Daniele on this Mediterranean Frittatas Post. I asked her to explain more about traditional Mediterranean Frittatas and where this recipe went wrong. Here’s what she says.

What I wanted to say with my comment is that for our tradition a mediterranean frittata is prepared using a pan and done by pan-frying (i don’t know if it is the correct translation, sorry). The use of oven is much more recent (for logical reason) and by the way it is used for a little different version of frittata that have an fluffy batter (I mean “soft”) or for frittata soufflé with withe egg wiped up.

It’s anyway true that if you use mozzarella it’s better to use the oven, but in a typical mediterrenean recipe the ingredient most used is a vegetable and the cheese most preferred is the parmigiano.

There are many different and good recipe for a meditterranean frittata but the one that I would like to share (and I also like it) is made with courgette and parmigiano. I’ve found a link that explain hot to prepare it, but is written in italian language and I have difficulty to make a good translation of it (cooking terms aren’t so easy to translate for me):


I tried to run the recipe through Google Translate but it was seriously lacking. But if you know Italian or know another translator that does a better job it would be worth checking out.

Daniele, I thank you for sending this information and please send more if you see any other improvements that can be made on these recipes!

    Thanks! 🙂

    I know that Google Translate isn’t a good translator…
    You could try to use http://www.wordreference.com/. It translate only single word but it work much better than the Google’s one. 😉

    If I’ll found another good recipe I’ll tell you!

    Best regards,
