Zucchini, Pumpkins & Squash

By Kathleen Desmond Stang
Illustrated by Diane Varney

 

Zucchini, Pumpkins & Squash Every summer, home gardeners and shoppers at markets are greeted with a bumper crop of summer squash. What does one do with all that squash? The terrific thing about summer and winter squash is their endless variety and the boundless number of recipes one can create from them in the kitchen. Now in Kathleen Stang's newest book, Zucchini, Pumpkins & Squash, the author provides more than 35 new recipes that will fill the dinning table with terrific meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even for desserts!

If you love hash browns but don't want to over-do it on the carbohydrates, try the potato-less Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns. Pancake lovers will love the Golden Pumpkin-Orange Pancakes with Orange Butter, and Frittata's are winners year 'round. Wow dinner guests or family members by serving Corn Chowder in Miniature Pumpkin Shells or a French Lamb Stew in a big orange pumpkin shell. Give risotto a new twist with butternut squash; vegetarians will love the Vegetarian Summer Squash Lasagna. The traditional Pumpkin Pie can't be beat in November but how about trying a Pumpkin-Hazelnut Cake? and for youngsters, try the Jumbo Jack-o'-Lantern Cookies. Zucchini, Pumpkins, & Squash

Stang provides a brief overview of summer and winter squash as well as a glossary that describes the many varieties found in more and more local markets such as the Carnival, a cross between Acorn and Sweet Dumpling (delicious), Kabocha; the Japanese Pumpkin, and the Rouge Vif D'Etampes an Heirloom French variety.

Stang's clear, concise, step-by-step instructions make these recipes a snap and are sure to encourage any cook to experiment with the bounty of zucchini, pumpkins, and squash. Diane Varney's whimsical watercolors add to the book's delightful charm.
