LOVE Thanksgiving. It’s the one holiday of the year where the one and only reason we gather is to eat. I know there’s stuff about the Pilgrims in there but it’s really about the food. Recently my friends at Diablo Magazine contacted me about designing a super simple casual Thanksgiving menu. Click here to see my article.
The turkey was inspired by the incredible Zuni Roast Chicken, which is crispy skinned roast chicken served over bread salad. I think roasting a turkey is the biggest stumbling block for most people and using turkey breast only is a quick, moist, approachable solution. I kept the traditional flavors in the rest of the menu, simplifying the recipes, and of course including a pumpkin tart for dessert. In order to make this as stress free as possible I provided an outline of how to put this menu together. With good organization this menu can be completed in a couple of hours. If this article and format is helpful to you as you entertain you will want to explore my new Virtual Caterer Services!
What is The Virtual Caterer??
I am often approached by friends and clients looking for help planning dinners, parties, and events in their home. There are times to hire a caterer and there are times when you are doing it yourself and I am offering my guidance to help you do it yourself. With Virtual Caterer you are able to fill out a questionnaire giving me the details of your event. I then create a customized menu with recipes, shopping list, and timelines. I offer a second package in which I am available via email during the week of your party for last minute questions…or panics!
