A Montaione (Fi) i fiori di borragine si friggono. Dopo aver lavato e asciugato i fiori si passano in una pastella di farina, acqua e un pizzico di sale. Si friggono in olio bollente e si spolverano con zucchero semolato. Sul blog Tuscany Holidays Montaione vi è il video con l’esecuzione della ricetta realizzata da Luciana Masi titolare del celebre ristorante Casa Masi: http://tuscanyholidaysmontaione.blogspot.it/2013/06/fiori-fritti-fried-flowers.html
