The time has come, friends. If you haven't carved yet this month, grab a knife and get ye to the nearest pumpkin. If you have carved then waste no more time and enter our 2011 Carving Contest.

The prizes, you ask? Besides serious carving street cred, the three winning pumpkins will get a signed copy of the Serious Eats book! Jamón agreed to a few more pawtographs, too.

Need carving tips? Voila. Upload photos to Photograzing by Tuesday, November 1 at 6 p.m. (EST). We'll announce the winners later next week. And while carving, don't you dare throw away those seeds.

Comments can take up to a minute to appear - please be patient!
