Unless your pumpkin has a really tough, craggy skin, you don’t need to peel it.
Toast the hazelnuts up to 24 hours in advance, cool and keep in a sealed container. You can roast the pumpkin ahead too – cool and keep, covered, in the fridge overnight, then reheat at 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4 to serve.
You can vary the cheese you use – roquefort, goat’s cheese or ricotta will all work well. Vegetarians can use cashel blue or similar instead (see cashelblue.com for stockists).
