While you're out searching for the perfect Halloween pumpkins for carving with the family, pick up an extra one for Chef Claire Thomas' (of The Kitchy Kitchen) Cream of Pumpkin Soup, which pairs well with 2015 Field Theory Albariño, Winc.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup:

 • 3 1/2 lbs peeled and diced pumpkin (or kabocha squash)
 • 1 quart whole milk
 • 1 bay leaf
 • 4 thin slices onion
 • 3 sprigs of parsley
 • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
 • 2 cups chicken stock
 • 1 cup heavy cream


1. Fill a pot with 1 1/2 quarts of salted water, add the pumpkin, and cook until tender.
2. Pour everything into another pot through a fine mesh sieve, pressing the pumpkin through to make a very fine puree.
3. Add the milk, bay leaf, onion, and parsley, and bring to a simmer, cooking for 30 minutes.
4. Pull out the aromatics, and add the nutmeg and chicken stock. Continue simmering for another 30 minutes, careful not to boil, and taste. Season with more salt or pepper if needed.
5. Just before serving, stir in the heavy cream.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
