Zucchini Flowers

We've got a large zucchini plant in our garden that is producing lots of flowers, but so far no zucchini. Does anyone have any tips on getting it to produce? Also, I've heard the flowers are edible. What do they taste like and what can I do with them? Are they worth messing with on their own or are they more of a garnish? To me it seems like a case of "just because you can doesn't mean you should," but then again I've never actually eaten them.
