Hi all,

Halloween is an annual holiday observed on October 31, which commonly includes activities such as trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. Part of many festivities is carving weird faces in pumpkins, what to do with the pumpkin when the festivities are over?  We have a few great ideas in this week's recipes, see below.

According to this week's book author, life is too short to grow unremarkable food.  Our book of the week, is an extremely absorbing book dedicated to more unusual yet delicious fruits, nuts and vegetables that can easily be grown in the average garden.

Our November class schedule is now up on our website.  included in the programme are two great classes with the festive season theme. Cooking classes for individuals for the next two weeks include  Spicy Thai, French cooking, and Jamie’s quick meals and pastas.  See the overview below for all the cooking classes for the next month. Find us on Facebook and Twitter – just search for Wickedfood and you will find us. We update the blog on a daily basis and publish it through Facebook and Twitter.
