Butternut squash is a vegetable that lends itself quite well to many culinary preparations.

You will usually find it on Italian markets in late summer and autumn and thanks to its sweet taste is an excellent ingredient for both savoury and sweet recipes.

In fact, the pumpkin or butternut squash in the kitchen is a real wild card: it is used to prepare various dishes, from first courses to desserts, to main course as well as side dishes.

In Veneto it is the star of many recipes, both savoury and sweet, like Zucca in Saor.

It is one of the main ingredients of Cook in Venice‘s cooking classes in Italy.
