Fancy French name and a delicious winter squash. I grew this one at the suggestion of Cookery book writer Georgeanne Brennan. She lives close by and can often be found in our fields looking for vegetables for a book photo shoot. You need a good size oven to cook this whole but we like to slice it like a cake and bake it. I sell slices at the farmers market on Saturday. If you come to the pumpkin party on the farm make sure you ask for a slice to take home. It makes a great halloween decoration too.
