Dear Mr Foodie,

When shredding the zucchini do you prefer to use the finer side of the grater or the side that gives much courser threads?

Certainly, the finer it is, the less likely to be infiltrated by our radical protesting anti-veggie young'n.

...and it really does sound like it will be super moist! Can't wait to try it out. Thanks!
