The best pumpkin in the history of the world

Available right now at Harvest in Grey Lynn. It is complete and utter true perfection. I might be quite the pumpkin fan. But this is good. Really good. Bright orange outside. Bright orange inside when cooked. A dry-ish, compact texture. Bursting with delicious full pumpkin flavour.


Thursday, pumpkin and chorizo risotto. Tonight, peri peri chicken from Westmere with roast pumpkin, garlic mushrooms (and a side of alfalfa and viniagrette). Tomorrow baked pumpkin with tofu. And then I’ll be over it and won’t eat pumpkin again until September.

    mmm, pumpkin, except my son hates it so I don’t get to cook it as often as I would like.

    I love a creamy, pumpkin and pancetta risotto.

    Oh, you’re enjoying the Fall, huh?! Here I am in spring… Pumpkin season is one of my all-time favorite times of the year. Also, there are so many wonderful recipes for pumpkin and squash and those dishes you mentioned sound delicious!
