History - Zucchini Bread

Wayne Keyser | Mar 21, 2005 04:51 PM

A fellow cook (who, IMO, wouldn't know a spatula from a spit) was going on the other day about zucchini bread being some kind of "food tradition" with a long and honorable history - maybe the Indians brought it to the first Thanksgiving or something.

Does anybody know when the idea of putting zucchini in a bread recipe first appeared? (Serious question)

For bonus points, does anybody know what was done to the cook who invented it, and how many big burly guys with clubs it took to do it?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
