"A volume that demystifies these vegetables and presents a hundred or so recipes that are simple and, for the most part, economic to prepare." —Mostly Food & Travel Journal Everyone knows and loves the traditional pumpkin—plump and golden carved into a Halloween lantern—and perhaps you've prepared a pumpkin pie or a thick pumpkin soup. But in the last few years other more interesting and varied varieties such as patty pans, kabocha, butternut, acorn, and spaghetti squashes have become available from farmer's markets and allotment gardeners. For all those cooks who have wondered what to do with these glorious new vegetables, or those who simply want some inspirational ideas for the good old pumpkin or what to do with that glut of zucchini—here are the recipes. From Pumpkin and White Bean Soup to Minted Zucchini Soup; from Squash Couscous to Zucchini Bread; from Spicy Pumpkin, Rum, and Raisin Ice Cream to Pumpkin Wine, there are over one hundred easy-to-prepare dishes such as stews, pasta sauces, pickles, relishes, cakes, breads, quiches, biscuits, and jams, to take you through the entire year. For those enthusiasts who like to grow their own produce there are cultivation instructions and seed sources as well as advice on picking, storing, and a guide to varieties. "This book offers countless recipes for all varieties of squash. There are sweet and savoury recipes alike, including a few surprises." —Mutherfudger
