Take any squash or pumpkin : they are still in season and come in all sorts of beautiful shapes and colours – the one above is called “potimarron” in French and has pretty scalloped edges!
Put it in whole in a hot oven for at least 35 or 45 min. depending on its size. When a knife can easily be inserted and the skin has taken a deep orange colour, remove from the oven.
Carefully cut the top off with a sharp knife as if it was a serving dish with a lid: sprinkle a bit of sea salt and a dash of olive oil on the flesh and serve warm immediately.
It is as stunning a dish as it is delicious and the flesh will scoop out easily, impressing everybody!
