NEW YORK, N.Y., Nov. 26, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Pumpkin pie spice captures the essence of comfort and hospitality with its distinctive, subtle aroma of cloves, ginger, cinnamon and allspice. Now, thanks to super-foods author Stephanie Pedersen, the spice blend's captivating flavor is no longer limited to the traditional Thanksgiving table and the pumpkin pie.
Pedersen's new book, "The Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookbook: Delicious Recipes for Sweets, Treats, and Other Autumnal Delights" (ISBN: 9781454913986), beautifully illustrates the manner in which pumpkin pie spice lends a welcome warmth to a range of fare.
"Pumpkin pie may be traditional Thanksgiving fare, but pumpkin pie spice is anything but ho-hum," says Pedersen. "The spices share a special alchemy and a range of uses which delight fans of their flavors throughout the year."
In the book's pages, the reader will find chai latte and vegan nogs, waffles, chilis, bisques, breads, and chutneys standing shoulder to shoulder in the slim 96 page, 40-recipe volume, designed to surprise and delight.
Readers across the web agree the book is a perfect hostess gift, and Pedersen agrees.
"Unfortunately, guests often choose host or hostess gifts at the last minute, and the result often looks and feels thrown together. Those types of offerings can reflect poorly on the giver," she says. "In contrast, everything about this book is gracious and thoughtful, reflecting the qualities most valued in a host or hostess."
Pedersen suggests the book may be gifted alone for a casual dinner, or paired with a measure of one's favorite pumpkin spice blend and a bottle of complementary wine for more upscale occasions.
