Thanksgiving Dinner is Served!

Designing kitchens is especially fun for me since I love spending time in them.  Cooking a holiday meal is like a design project for me–the coordination of dishes and presentation helps make the meal special.

Thanksgiving is a major event in my family.  Typically, we’ll have up to 17 family and friends seated around our table for 7 or more hours.  It is a leisurely (okay, marathon!) meal with wine pairings for each course.  Cooking many courses for a crowd takes time and planning.  I often start cooking the freezer-friendly dishes weeks ahead of time.  Following is my menu from last year, complete with photos.  Happy Thanksgiving!
