It's that time of the year again when winter squashes are abundant, and our favorite one takes center stage. The Almighty Pumpkin! Although many of them get turned into Jack-O-Lanterns, some would argue that the best ones are the kind you eat. And we're not just talking about pumpkin pie folks. Pumpkin is in fact a super versatile "veggie". Just to prove it, we're going on a food voyage, to experience this gourd like you've never experienced before. So get ready to explore pumpkin in all its glory.

Please join us for an intimate hands on cooking class as 8 students prepare a wide variety of dishes, both savory and sweet, made entirely from scratch using all of the pumpkin's tender flesh and seeds.
