THANKSGIVING DAY- Is a special holiday and time of year when we all gather, to enjoy the harvest, to reflect and to give thanks for our blessings.  Part of giving thanks typically includes a wonderful feast, that combines fall harvest vegetables, turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie.

What is a Pumpkin?

A pumpkin is a cultivated variety (cultivar) of the squash plant, most commonly of the Cucurbita pepo.  It is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and most often deep yellow to orange in coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. Some exceptionally large cultivars of squash with similar appearance have also been derived from Cucurbita maxima.

Why do we eat Pumpkin Pie on Thanksgiving day?

Pumpkin pies are eaten for thanksgiving because they are not only tasty but readily available and follow tradition. The pumpkin pie is a symbol of the land and the cultivation of pumpkins and squashes by Canadians & Americans.

Why use Piccola Cucina Almond Pie Shell?

The original Piccola Cucina Almond Pie Shell was created with the attention and care of an Italian family who brought their traditions to Canada. This pie isn't made the way a typical pie is; instead, a mother and her daughter made it with love and passion to please their family on Thanksgiving. They spent a lot of time and effort putting together this amazing mixture of gluten-free ingredients. The pie carries the autograph of Italian and Canadian taste.
