Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

Wishing every one a Happy Halloween!

I have posted many pumpkin soup recipes but in this one I added more veggies friends.
Of course the main ingredient  is pumpkin but the rest were one: onion, leak, potato, carrot and apple. I seasoned with herbes de provence and served with a dollop of crème fraîche, and a leaf of beet.

On the side I made a mini steamed arepa with precooked corn meal, beet pure, oatmeal, toasted and ground almond and sesame seed on a corn leaf.

After my son Esteban told me that my living room had a pastiche style, I just realized I also have a gastronomic pastiche point of view, if I may use that term with food. I don't see why not. This will be the beginning of understanding myself and the way I am connected with food. 

Ready for trick or treat?
