Pumpkin Seed Spread and Pumpkin Flatbread at Edi & the Wolf, NYC
The Austrians know their pumpkin oil, which chefs Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban expertly utilize in their signature spread and flatbread. The latter pays homage to the squash through a tantalizing topping of roasted pumpkins, smoked mozzarella, crème fraiche, cipollini onions, arugula and toasted pumpkin seeds. For a lighter snack, order the pumpernickel and walnut raisin bread topped with unbelievably creamy farmer’s cheese that's mixed with sweet and nutty pumpkinseed oil. Though this spread may have the flavor of fall nailed down, pumpkin oil is actually an Austrian staple, so you can try this dish all year round.
