We just got back from the South of France, where we spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my husband's family. They sweetly wanted to do a real Thanksgiving for us Americans, and his dad insisted on making a turkey, stuffing, and yams. My husband had to hunt for the closest thing he could find to a pumpkin to make a pie. He ended up finding a potimarron aka red kuri squash. The pie was more yellow than orange with a mellower taste than pumpkin pie... it was very good and gourmet. A restaurant could serve a chic version of it on a seasonal tasting menu. I contributed some wine that came highly recommended by Carrefour (a French store that is similar to Costco).
