So the rainy fall weather has me craving pumpkin. I live in Santa Monica, and I've made the rounds once already:
Fritto Misto's Pumpkin Ravioli
Pumpkin Curry and Chandni
Pumpkin pastry at Amandine
Pumpkin Ale at the Library (this was BAD, Buffalo Bill's changes it's recipe every year, and this one is awful!)
And now I'm stuck. I have vague memories of Pumpkin soup from last year, and a better pumpkin ale (Dogfish Head) from three or four years ago... but I have no recollection of where to get them.
Any pumpkin tips would be welcome. I travel far and wide for work, so anything from South Orange County to Ventura is fair game.
