Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread
"This is the bread that set me on the path of becoming a chef. Ironically, it's held such fond memories for me that I haven't made it since I won the fair as a child - I suppose because it has always been kind of sacred." - Corey

Zucchini (large), 2 1/2 lb.
Sugar, 1 1/2 lb.
