It’s the season! Pumpkins are here - a sure sign that Autumn has arrived. Versatile and available in several varieties the humble pumpkin is a wonder produce for sweet and savory recipes. A few years ago all one could find in Germany was the Red Kuri pumpkin. Slowly year for year I began seeing the butternut, then the Musque de Provence and then it seemed the pumpkin market exploded here. I love pumpkins and for me this change was a huge advantage in my kitchen
Last week I was shooting with the awesome knives from Wüsthof presenting their incredible IKON series. Those who know me and have followed me for a long time on this blog will know that I truly believe that almost every fancy gadget in the kitchen is redundant - the real important piece of equipment required is a set of some very good knives. Sharp, knives that lie like an extension in your hands, well balanced and that are made well are invaluable.
The concept we worked out involved lots of pumpkins! I found a few beauties at the market that added to the sexiness of the IKON series. The images were a hit with the client. I was however, left with a crate-full of lovely pumpkins.
I roasted a few, added them to salads and quinoa bowls, made fritters with one but I got the feeling they were multiplying instead od decreasing. I turned to friends and followers on my social media channels and as always I was not let down.
I was presented with so many wonderful recipes and ideas with the wonderful pumpkin, not only was I touched but also wanted to honor them by placing them in a pumpkin hit list to share it with my readers here.
This Autumn all you need is our Pumpkin Hit List to use your pumpkins - look no further as we have everything from sweet to savory from mild to spicy. We all hope you enjoy making these recipes.
Antje Schröder loves her pumpkin “sliced pumpkin, baked in the oven and topped with creamy goat cheese. Just simple and delicious”
Preeti Garg Hokaido pumpkin is very easily prepared in the pan. I roast it with white mushrooms and green bell peppers. I love to add ricotta at the very end. Vest eaten with pasta but rice like badmati go well too. Sometimes I preoare it in the oven too when I wznt it to accompany an elaborate meal where it saves my time but on cook top is a more energy efficient/saving way of preparing it. Indian tandoori roti prepared in the oven goes very well too.
