A Ghoulishly Decadent Halloween!

A Ghoulishly Decadent Halloween!

What’s Halloween without pumpkins? Whether you’re concocting treats or giving free rein to your inner artist, take a look at our tips.

2 types of pumpkins, 2 different uses

Small pumpkins

Their sweeter flesh and smaller size mean they’re perfect for cooking…and they also make lovely decorations painted!

  • Cut pumpkin in half, peel, and seed; then cut flesh into cubes.
  • Bake cubes on an oiled baking sheet at 200°C (400°F) for about 15 minutes, or until cubes are tender.
  • Use in braised dishes, stir-frys, purées, pies, cookies, and so much more!


These pumpkins charm us with their varying weights, sizes and shapes. Their stringy flesh is little used for cooking, but their seeds are absolutely delicious toasted.

Our tips for carving a pumpkin

  • Safety first! Make sure to keep the knives out of children’s hands.
  • Start by cutting out a lid around the stem at a slight inward angle.
  • Scoop out the insides of the pumpkin. Discard the pulp, but keep the seeds to toast.
  • Draw your design or face on the pumpkin either free hand or using a stencil.
  • Pierce a multitude of small holes along the lines of your design using a pick or skewer so it’s easier to carve with your knife.
  • Once your masterpiece completed, insert a small candle (ideally a battery operated one) and place outside your front door!
