Excellent flavor and texture! I halved the recipe and it worked just fine, although I'm not a stickler for measuring. Because my squash was large, I cooked it longer than recommended so it would be really soft. The blender puree is a necessary step - don't just mash it you'll miss out on the smooth texture of the soup. Also, the sherry and cream really add a depth of flavor. For seasonings, I skipped the cayenne pepper and added a bit of cinnamon instead. Also, I used course ground black pepper, but found it distracting with the pure texture/color of the soup. Next time I'll use fine white pepper instead.
