A spectacular holiday potluck with recipes from our editors.
There’s no other holiday quite as tied to food as Thanksgiving, so at Fine Cooking, we plan each year’s holiday feature far in advance. Every winter, we gather to start talking about what we want to do next year. The conversation meanders from new and interesting turkey cooking techniques we’ve read about or tried to different ways to approach the side dishes (which, for most of us, are just as exciting as the bird) and, inevitably, to how we personally celebrate the holiday. We have a wide array of traditions in our families, from huge, lively gatherings to small, intimate affairs. Some of us have signature dishes our relatives clamor for, and some of us like to change things up. This year, we realized that if we pooled our talents, we could put together one heck of a delicious menu. The recipes in this menu represent our editors’ own personal favorites. They make quite the feast served together, but you could also pick one or two and add them to your own holiday spread.
This menu serves 8 to 10 people, with leftover turkey
