A Harvest of Pumpkins and Squash
by Lou Seibert Pappas
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. Squash and its pumpkin cousins have finally taken their rightful place at the dinner table.
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 to 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 entree (try Roasted Autumn Root Vegetables on the side), and Five-Spice Pumpkin-Ginger Cake for a decadent dessert.
In addition to recipes delicious enough to make eating 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. Filled with beautiful full-color pictures. 96 pages, hardback.
