Day 1: Nov 20 – Turkey Day Made Lit
Duo of Turkey
Hoisin Glazed Turkey – Inspired by something different? Then its time to break from tradition and look at Turkey with a new lens. We will do this deconstructed with a crispy skin topping.
Southwestern with Honey Chipotle Glaze – Lip smacking sweet, spicy, and salty. This might find its way into a taco as well.
Roasted Squash Soup – The class gets to decide if this gets a Curry treatment (Go Dubs) or with a splash of crème or maybe brown butter. Versatile and tasty cups of goodness.
Corn and Cheddar Muffins – These are fun especially when you make them in an aebleskiver pan…what’s that? Think basketball.
Spiced Root Vegetables – Brussels, Red Onions, Sweet Potatoes – get a balsamic glaze, then topped with crumbled bacon. Finishing them in the oven with feta on top probably isn’t necessary but SO GOOD. Or maybe pickled?
Kale Salad – With roasted kombucha chunks, pumpkin seeds, shaved grana Parmesan.
Cranberry Filled Doughnuts – That’s right…..donuts with cranberry filling and maybe a dusting of powdered sugar. Did we mention donuts?
Pumpkin Hand Pies – It’s an empanada with pumpkin filling. Yum.
Day 2, Nov 21st
House made Hummus and Spiced Pita Chips – All hand made and drizzled with just a touch of olive oil.
Romaine Wedge Salad – Simple yet with extra bacon, cucumbers and rainbow cherry tomatoes. Topped with basil and dressed with a mustard vinaigrette made in a bottle! Boom!
The most decadent Mashed Potatoes ever – Made with a ricer and butter and cream and salt and a dash of pepper – it’s GREAT.
Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower with Shaved Parmesan – Such a great way to ensure you get your daily allotment of dairy & veggies.
Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin – So tasty and juicy.
Caramelized Onion Pan Sauce – Don’t toss out the juice or clean the pan without doing this first.
Apple Rose Puff Pastry – Do you see the picture? Yes….it’s delicious.
Day 3, Nov 22nd
Let’s take a break from all the heavy foods and we will focus on lighter fare.
Crostini – The class decides on this one. Let the imagination go!
Salad – Pasta, Greens or Bean or any good ideas will be put on the board and we will vote on what the majority wants.
Pasta and Vegetable Marinara – The pasta will be hand made, the sauce slowly simmered. We might need to record this on a Live Feed for your friends to see.
Pumpkin Tarte – Keeping with the holiday spirits but much lighter that a full pie.
