    Chef mariajane's Note:

    Frittatas are flat Italian omelettes. In spring, the are made with seasonal vegetables such as young artichokes, tender asparagus, baby leeks or wild mushrooms. When cut into bite-size pieces and garnished with a little creme fraiche and spring chives, they make a tasty hors d'oeuvres.
