This recipe is dedicated to my Gpa George who passed a month ago, it was one of his favorite treats and dishes, because in my house, kolokithokeftedes was a snack and not a meal. He always was ready for some zucchini patties if someone asked and always made them with greek feta cheese. He made them so much that I never had to really ask him to teach me since the recipe is so quick and easy, I could memorize it, just by looking at him making it. It happened to be also my daughters Zoe favorite meal, she loves it. While we were shopping today she grabbed a zucchini and said “Mommy can you make this, to look like pancakes” I was clueless for a minute because she likes sweet pancakes also, but then knew what she meant. Yes honey, mommy will make you some zucchini patties.
Thank you Gpa for all the kolokithokeftedes you have ever made for us. I dearly miss and love you.
