Food, Glorious Food - Of The Real Kind! What pumpkins? Forget about the pumpkins. What you really need is to get your lips round some courges d'hiver, you Yankee varmint philistines! (More inside.)

This is truly a marvellous, almost luxurious website, full of authentic recipes from around the world. Why, there are even a handful from Portugal! Speaking of which, I also highly recommend David Leite's Culinaria. He's a very savvy Portuguese-American from The Azores, who obviously knows a trick or two. He lives in New England so his take on the sumptuous autumnal American classic, chowder is much to be respected, to say the least.

If you are making pumpkin pie, pumpkins - or the big green skinned pumpkin-like squash we get in Hungary - beat Euro-courgettes any day. A lot of my ethnic Yank friends are planning for Thanksgiving already, and my girlfriend, from Japan, is the pumpkin pie Queen. She makes about ten every year. Unfortunately, I'll be in Slovenia this Thanksgiving... eating fish.

Pass on the recipe chapter for Hungary - this "shashlik" is a fantasy. It doesn't exist here. As for Romanian pickles - nope. Not like that at all. You have to stick stale rye bread in the mouth of the jar for fermentation and use an herb called "csombord", sort of a wild tarragon.
