Giant Pumpkins

This week has all been about pumpkins, a Giant Pumpkins from Class One in Skipton was carefully delivered to The Bull at Broughton for the photo below and then an interview for the next FreshExtra podcast with Michelin Star Chef Nigel Haworth from Northcote.  Pumpkin is one of Nigel’s favourite autumn ingredients and we discussed everything from soup to pairing pumpkin with turkey!  Nigel also recommends Pumpkin & Partridge, Pumpkin & Venison, roast pumpkin, caramelised pumpkin or even with fish infused with herbs and for Pumpkin Soup maybe something to spice up the flavour like Pumpkin & Ginger soup.
