Holiday Pumpkins: A Collection of Inspired Recipes, Gifts, and Decorations Paperback – August 25, 2003
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
