Description: With such diverse varieties as delicata, gold nugget, butternut, acorn, and kabocha, squash offers a wealth of flavors and textures that are welcome in any number of recipes. Squash is the secret to moist quick breads and waffles and the sweet accompaniment to meaty main courses. And we all know what it adds to desserts such as pumpkin pie and ice cream. As the demand for locally grown produce and sustainable agriculture has increased in recent years, squash and its pumpkin cousins have taken their rightful place at the dinner table (not to mention its other uses as a beautiful adornment and even as a serving vessel).
In A Harvest of Pumpkins and Squash, both winter and summer pumpkin and squash selections stand at the ready, waiting to enhance an array of savory and sweet dishes. Squash is great from morning until night, so recipes include such gems as Cranberry-Walnut Pumpkin Coffeecake for breakfast, Grilled Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Zucchini and Goat Cheese for a tasty entrée (try Roasted Autumn Root Vegetables on the side), and, last but certainly not least, Five-Spice Pumpkin-Ginger Cake for a decadent dessert.
In addition to recipes delicious enough to make eating healthy seem downright sinful, this abundant book offers a glossary of the types of squash, basic cooking information, and useful tips on how to buy and store pumpkins and squash.
A Harvest of Pumpkins and Squash is sure to become a well-thumbed, much-loved companion in your kitchen- all year long.
