Hungry in Brooklyn – Pumpkin

pumpkinsIt’s almost Halloween which means pumpkins are at their peak!  On this episode we head to New Jersey to visit Phillips Farms, where farmer Marc Phillips shows us the different varieties of this scrumptious squash.  Then we head over to Franny’s in Brooklyn (one of my favorite restaurants) for Chef John Adler’s pumpkin crostini – a delicious mound of sauteed pumpkin atop toasted baguette spread with Salvatore Brooklyn Ricotta?  Yes please! Then it’s back to the kitchen for a local Pumpkin Soup that’s easy enough to make any night of the week, but delicious enough to serve as a first course for your Thanksgiving dinner.
