In Australia & New Zealand the traditional roast dinner normally includes roast pumpkin.
It came as a huge surprise to me to learn that in Europe it mostly used as cattle fodder and in the States for pie filler.
My childhood favourite was our Sunday roast - either a chicken or leg of lamb along with roast potato, kumara (a Kiwi sweet potato) pumpkin, carrot & parsnip.
these days I cook my pumpkin in an oven bag with a generous dollop of sweet Thai chilli sauce.

Hi Dalfyre,

Thank you for your comments. It is always interesting to hear how foods are prepared in other areas. Do you make your own sweet Thai chili sauce?

LOL - I am not that good a cook...
the supermarket has a good range of Asian foods & sauces which makes it very easy to try new things :)
I have been told that the pumpkin varieties we use for cooking are different to those available in the States...
particularly good are buttercup, Queensland Blue & butternut (although that might not be a proper pumpkin it is gourd shaped)
cheers from Down Under
