Tomorrow begins the month of October, so it’s time to start putting out those Halloween decorations, including some carved pumpkins!

It might be a good idea to brush up on your cooking skills before Thanksgiving, so why not start with a quick guide to blanching and shocking vegetables, courtesy of Tea Fougner? She also has her own bit of soup advice to impart, showing how to make three different vegetable soups (Autumn root veggie puree, celery and onion puree, and veggie stock), all using the same pot!
