The first several chapters of this book will provide you with background information on how to choose, store, and cook pumpkin, as well as the types of pumpkin available. Several of the recipes are unique and are yummy-sounding pairing of ingredients that you would not have seen in other cookbooks. More than half of the recipes are accompanied by a beautiful full-page color photo. Chapters include Breads and Breakfast, Soups, Salads and Sides, Entrees and Desserts. This book also talks about Squash and its varitties such as butternut, zucchini, chayote, kabocha, and acorn.
