I guess looking great photos of pumpkins is – to foodies- what cute kitten photos are to the rest of the world. I got so many wonderful comments when I posted about pumpkin risotto the other day. And most of them were for the photos, not the recipe. So…thank you! In fact, thank you so much, here’s another.
I think it’s hard NOT to get great pumpkin photos this time of year. The farmers markets in Rome are groaning with all sorts of wonderful zucche. Speaking of which. In Italian zucche stands in for just about any winter squash. I was talking to my sister earlier, about pumpkin soup recipes, and she kept insisting she didn’t use pumpkin. The problem was that I was using the word ‘pumpkin’ to mean any old zucca: butternut, acorn…whatever.
