It's the great pumpkin! Yes indeed. So many culinary uses we have for this surprisingly nutritious gourd.
|Creamy Pumpkin Soup|
The great master of the French Grande Cuisine- Auguste Escoffier ( 1846-1935)
classified soups during his era amongst other world renowned French chefs.
There were the obvious clear soups, purees, cullises, bisques, veloutes,and cream soups.And there were also vegetable, special soups and foreign soups.
Each category with its own unique preparation , and for variety, choice ingredients. Because of the changes in consumer health consciousness and kitchen operations some of Escoffier's classics have become almost obsolete.
On the contrary, quite a few techniques still remain untouched by the nouveau chefs and cooks .
Pumpkin soup would fit right up there in the pureed bunch in Escoffier's classification of soups, yum, yum!
