Pumpkins and potatoes play a major role in defining many traditional and seasonal recipes in Switzerland. Both vegetables are abundant and inexpensive, with many varieties to choose from.  We have put together two books which offer valuable tips on purchasing and storing fresh pumpkins and potatoes, guidelines and descriptions of the varieties available...and of course, a nice selection of traditional and original recipes.
