Americans thrive on being rebels… But if there is one day we put aside rebellion in favor of tradition its Thanksgiving!
Here are a few quick menu tips if you are the chef this year:
- Nail the basics. Your guests will expect turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, vegetables and pie for dessert. Deviation is sin.
- Experiment with new sides. After you nail the basics, add different colors and textures to the table with side dishes.
- Give thought to appetizers and drinks. It will impress your guests and allow more creativity than the main meal.
In a culture of rebels, the tradition of Thanksgiving unites us all!
