Yellow pumpkin bread

I love baking and I love making bread, trying to spend as much time as possible in this hobby. Pumpkin is generally used in sweet cake loaf or in soups. I decided to make a savoury bread, with a beautifully warm colour, perfect for brunch or for breakfast, slapped with really good butter. The pumpkin does not make the bread particularly sweet. It is a  loaf we were delighted with, infact there were only crumbs left after the brunch Try and let me know.

Savory pumpkin flan

Pumpkin and butternut are typical autumn ingredients, suitable for ravioli, bread and cakes. Generally, in Italy, pumpkin is used for savory recipes, being pumpkin sweet by itself. The savory flan, which we propose is soft and creamy, rich and velvety.
Very easy to make, because everything is just mixed together and whizzed up in a blender and gorgonzola cheese sauce adds an extra touch. To taste!

Pumpkin ravioli

Pumkin ravioli are a traditional Christmas eve meal. They appeared for the first time in the areas of Mantova and Ferrara at Gonzaga and Este courts. Their flavour is sweet, balanced because of  the ingredients of the stuffing: the sweetness of the pumpkin and the salty flavour of the fruit mustard together with the nice taste of Amaretti cookies, give the pumpkin ravioli bitter-sweet flavour making them unique and particular.

Pumpkin, lemon and amaretti soup

Seasonal vegetables, a blender and a handful of minutes are the ingredients to make greedy creams and veloutés. Healthy, tasty and savory, soups offer a bit of warmth and color in cold winter evenings. Herbs, toasted bread and fantasy are the finishing matter to enjoy the best of these traditional dishes, turning them into delicious topical preparations.
