Cooking Class with Irresistible Pumpkins!

by Mary Papoulias-Platis

These pictures are from my cooking class Irresistible Pumpkins. When I select a subject to teach, I tend to create a class with seasonal cooking subjects for the basic reason that the main ingredients are in stock at the supermarkets as well as at the farmers markets in the area.  Here, I chose a pumpkin theme and everyone had a wonderful time exploring the basics of cooking with fresh pumpkin, to soup building skills, along with with the process of making a delicious risotto. Here you can learn the cooking technique for roasting a pumpkin.
