Inspired by Squash & This Art Print Could Be Yours!

Who doesn’t love a squash?  Butternut, Potimarron, Spaghetti, Acorn, Blue Hubbard – there are more varieties than I ever gave this humble vegetable credit for.

And I absolutely love this new Squash Print by talented illustrator, Claudia Pearson, which she created in partnership with GrowNYC.  I first saw this print in December in the Union Square Greenmarket information tent, where I was doing a very very cold book signing.  The print is 18″ x 24″ and will be available shortly on Claudia’s Etsy Shop for purchase.

However, if you visit Claudia Pearson’s blog and leave a nice comment about one of your favorite ways to cook squash, you could win a poster of our very own!  Claudia will pick the very lucky winner randomly on March 8th.

This winter, I picked out a few new kinds of squash at the Greenmarkets and peeled and hacked them up with my newly sharpened knives.  I usually toss the firm, cool chunks in a bowl with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, and popped them in the oven on a cookie sheet fro 45 minutes at 375°.  They invariably came out crispy on the outside and warm, soft, and full of flavor on the inside.  Frankly, it was kind of a revelation for me how much I love squash.  Next winter, I’m making potimarron soup.
