“Jouons Avec La Citrouille” is a French book that tells you everything you want to know about pumpkins: the different types, where they come from, their health benefits and above all how to cook them. Written by passionate amateur chef Walid Mouzannar, a jeweler by trade, the only pumpkin missing from this book is the one Cinderella used. Enjoy getting to know Walid’s pumpkin stories and his recipes for soups, salads, stews, main dishes and even deserts. The easy to follow recipes take pumpkin cooks’ step by step towards delicious dishes which include a range of options from couscous pumpkin to tabbouleh with pumpkin, rice with pumpkin mint and garlic and many more. Charmingly illustrated by Pascale Hares, the book contains valuable information about why pumpkins are good for you and, in essence, what you are missing if you don’t join Walid Mouzannar in his passion for pumpkins. Forget Halloween lanterns and simple soup. This is the humble pumpkin as you have never seen it before. Sahtain!
