this year, the chef and i are staying in dc for thanksgiving and we’ve invited some of his neurology co-residents for dinner. the big meal is one week from today, and we haven’t even discussed the menu. i’m hoping to create a super colorful meal using Japanese ube instead of standard sweet potatoes, heirloom carrots instead of the plain old orange ones, and swiss chard for a splash of color in our stuffing. but i’m sure steven has his own ideas. he’s much more of a traditionalist on this day than i am.
here are some recipes i’m considering:
- braised swiss chard with bacon + hot sauce
- mashed ube with bacon
- rosemary roasted carrots
- bon appétits new classic stuffing
- chickpea stuffed acorn squash
- bourbon pecan pie
