Step 1: Batter

In a stainless steel receptacle, whisk the egg, water, sifted flour, and a bit of fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.

Cover the receptacle, and let the mixture rest for 2 hours at room temperature.

When ready to use, add the chopped garlic tip.

Step 2: Zucchini

With the tip of a thin bladed knife, cut 12 thin bands of skin from the zucchetta, 1/2 inch (1 cm) wide and 4 inches (10 cm) long. Trim the edges so that they are nicely parallel. Wash these bands delicately under running water, and pat dry between two pieces of paper towel.

Dice the zucchini into an even salpicon.

Stalk and chop the basil.

Delicately remove the stem and the bottom of the zucchini blossoms. Split in half lengthwise, and shred them into strips 1/5 inch (5 mm) wide.
