Diverse options such as Orange-Pumpkin Pancakes, Thai Pumpkin Soup, Chicken in Pueblan Green Pumpkin Seed Sauce, Ham and Cheese Pumpkin Souffle, and Pumpkin Panna Cotta celebrate the countless possibilities of this mighty squash.

This is not a lightweight endeavor. The book is simply visually stunning, full of images that are bright, beautiful, evoking the ingredients, recipes, season. It's a big, colorful, book that spans a vast variety of offerings. From first read you realize this is THE Pumpkin Cookbook. DeeDee Stovel knows her subject, loves her craft, and conveys both in a way that is easily accessible to both experienced chefs and new cooks alike. The recipes are well presented and throughly explained in a thoughtful manner. The book is chock-full of practical informative advise on equivalencies from fresh to canned, how to prepare several ways, store, and freeze. All is easily accessible and referenced up front, not hidden within individual recipes. This is something I constantly hunt for, and I zeroed in on right away. Well done, and thank you!
There are sweet, savory, recipes you are hoping will be included, and recipes that are totally unexpected that you absolutely can not wait to try. From drinks to appetizers, soups to sides, main dishes to desserts, everything is covered! A few of my favorite recipes; Southwest Chicken Pumpkin Soup, Wild Mushroom Pumpkin Risotto, Apple Cranberry Pumpkin Stuffing, Creamy Fusilli Sausage and Pumpkin, and Pumpkin Panna Cotta. I can't wait to try more of these amazing recipes as I work my way through. If you buy one new cookbook this season I highly recommend The Pumpkin Cookbook by DeeDee Stovel. It's a wonderful addition to any kitchen as well as a great gift.
I received an advanced reader copy (eGalley) from Storey Publishing through NetGalley. This review reflects my honest and unbiased opinions.
Although everyone loves the conventional fall pumpkin bread, Stovel has made pumpkin breads and cakes even better with a variety of better-than-expected offerings such as Pumpkin Popovers, Spicy Cranberry Pecan Pumpkin Muffins, and Orange Pumpkin Pancakes. Her recipe for Banana Pumpkin Nut Bread combines two beloved breads, and the result is delicious. While there is a regular (and excellent) conventional Pumpkin Pie recipe, there are also several other mouthwatering pies made with pumpkin, such as Southern Pumpkin Pie with a gooey pecan topping (Yum!) and a Pumpkin Chess Pie. Cookies and bars made with pumpkin include Chocolate Pumpkin Brownies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Crisps, Graham Cracker Pumpkin Tannies (a personal favorite), and Orange Walnut Pumpkin Bars to name a few.
Even though the sweets are spectacular in this cookbook, the biggest draw is the variety of main and side dishes made with pumpkin. Pumpkin is a delicious winter squash and Stovel adds it to soups (Thai Pumpkin Soup, Caribbean Black Bean Pumpkin Soup, Harvest Pumpkin Soup, etc.) , stews – one yummy one is actually served in a pumpkin, and salads made with couscous and a Roasted Potato and Pumpkin Salad. Some of the best main dishes include Mexican Pumpkin Lasagna, a Pumpkin Pizza with Gorgonzola, and Meatloaf with a Pumpkin Glaze. Some of the recipes utilize pepitas (pumpkin seeds), like the Grilled Salmon with Pepita Crust. The dozens of side dishes are suitable for serving with almost every fall menu imaginable.
All told, anyone who likes winter squash (which is about everyone) will enjoy this excellent cookbook. Of course other types of winter squashes can be substituted, and some of the recipes call for the canned variety, so it will be easy for everyone to make a good pumpkin main dish, dessert, salad, or side dish. There are enough recipes for cooks to stay busy from fall all the way through winter.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
The author starts her cookbook discussing the varieties of squash (which includes pumpkins); how to prepare pumpkins and how to cook them. She includes a chart showing how to cook a pumpkin by broiling, steaming, microwaving, roasting and grilling.
I also appreciated her note about egg white safety as a recipe called Orange-Pumpkin Spanish Cream uses raw egg whites.
Some of the recipes you'll find in her cookbook include:
Pasta with Pumpkin and Wild Mushrooms
Roast Chicken with Harvest Vegetables
Graham Cracker Pumpkin Tannies
Surprising Pumpkin-Orange Cheesecake
Pumpkin Baked Alaska with Pumpkin-Ginger Ice Cream
