Cooking 108 ~ Winter Squash

My sous chef and I tested many recipes before finally settling on the menu for the October cooking class.  

The Sous Chef...taste testing.
Here is what made the cut:

Butternut Squash Tart with Chile-Honey Drizzle

 Southwestern Pumpkin Soup with Toasted Cumin Crème

Lasagna Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Acorn Squash with Sundried Tomato Polenta

Pumpkin Gnocchi Alfredo with Toasted Hazelnuts + Sage

Pumpkin Mousse with Amaretti Crunch

We started the night with a Pumpkin Patch Ale and ended it with Scott's Pumpkin Martinis, plus we ate all that food and finished up with a last minute Pumpkin Roll that I added to the menu.

Chef Scott, AKA the Gnocchi King knocked the pumpkin gnocchi out of the park. He quickly figured out the gnocchi board and he and Chef Lisa double teamed it. 

Here is a shot of the Acorn Squash with Sundried Tomato Polenta. That recipe is posted here, on the "Side Dishes" page.  Scroll down.....

Chef Vicki is prepping the Lasagne Stuffed Spaghetti Squash.  Ricotta and Italian Sausage in Marina sauce is about to go into those babies.  You can find that recipe here, under the "Pasta" tab...

Some of us working hard....  

Lisa and I had to watch these two guys like a hawk. Haney Buffet (Jimmy's brother) about screwed up the Pumpkin Alfredo sauce because Rich forgot to mention that there was cream in the recipe. Alfredo....Cream....who'd of thunk?

We had a great time and ate a lot of really good food. The Bacon class is next week. Details to follow!
