It’s almost Halloween, and we can’t wait to dig in to our favorite Halloween treats, which include special Halloween cocktails and pumpkin recipes in the red box below. There are also a dozen gourmet pizzas to make for your Halloween party. (Well, we don’t expect that you’ll make all of them, but they’re so tempting, you might try a few.)

But you don’t have to wait until the end of the month for a holiday: Check out the October Food Holidays list, and you’ll find something to celebrate almost every day. Speaking of something to celebrate, November 3, Chocolate Week in New York City, culminating in the Chocolate Show on November 7, 8 and 9, co-located with Tastings NYC gourmet food show.
