Editorial Reviews Review

Of all the autumnal images signifying the coming of winter, a horizon of rolling fields dotted with the brilliant orange of round, ripe pumpkins is surely one of the most enduring. As the author tells us, "pumpkins are woven into our history, myth, and lore." Accordingly, she provides a variety of interesting uses for the ubiquitous pumpkin which go well beyond the customary carving of a spooky-faced jack-o'-lantern. For anyone seeking to add seasonal flair to their harvest celebrations, this beautiful collection of recipes, table settings and decorating ideas should be most welcome.

With alternating chapters dedicated to either cooking or creating, the book offers numerous examples of attractive arts and crafts projects to brighten your home and tasty treats to please the palette. There is also a special section outlining activities for kids.

The step-by-step instructions are clearly worded and full-color photographs accompany each suggestion, making this an elegant and practical guide to successful holiday entertaining. --George Laney

From the Inside Flap

The holidays of autumn are rich with festivities and fruits of the harvest. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and harvesttime are celebrated by serving an array of tantalizing dishes, and by the creation of many special decorations for the home. ""Holiday Pumpkin" is a wonderful guide to some of these most beloved tastes and traditions of Fall.

Filled with over 30 recipes, "Holiday Pumpkin" offers both the old favorites as well as new dishes that will quickly become standards in any household. Traditional recipes range form Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie to Pumpkin Soup, Honey-Grilled Pumpkin Slices to Pumpkin Bread. Creative twists on this "new world" vegetable result in creations such as Sautd Pumpkin, Red Peppers, and Greens with Polenta, Pumpkin Blossoms with Goat Cheese Filling, and Pumpkin Cheesecake in a Gingersnap-Walnut Crust.

In addition to this delectable offering of recipes, "Holiday Pumpkin" presents over 30 decorating projects that use all sizes and colors of pumpkins. Here are directions not only for carving out a perfect jack-o'-lantern but also for creating lovely Pumpkin Candle Holders, Painted and Appliqud Pumpkins, and a Pumpkin Wreath. Some of these projects are perfect to do with kids, and all of the projects and recipes will add to the enjoyment of the autumn holidays, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.

Format: Paperback
An interesting, if somewhat sparse, collection of recipes for the titular ingredient awaits this work's reader. The recipes are well written and include the usual fare of pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins and a few varieties of pumpkin stew. I was hoping for a few surprises, but I think the closest were pumpkin flan and pumpkin ice cream. There are, however, some interesting non-food uses of pumpkins illustrated such as soup tureens, decorations, and the like for some innovative pumpkin projects. It's worth checking out if your library carries it but unlike most books from Ten Speed Press, one could probably live without owning it.
