November is a very special month for our family, as my eldest son was born right around Thanksgiving, opening the door to festivities and celebrations, as we open our Advent calendars on December 1st, which officially inaugurates the Christmas season.
How I love Thanksgiving for all the wonderful family time, cooking together, and bringing our family together around distinctly seasonal Autumn fare, loaded in taste, color and textures, in sum, food for the soul.
As I am in the process of finishing « Vignes et Mets Automne », and also in the process of planning this year’s Thanksgiving with my youngest son, here is last year’s menu, which you will find in the menu section for November :
Champagne, Foie gras, Jack O’Lanterns, Dinde farcie aux pruneaux, Gratin aux Cèpes, Sauce à la canneberge, Pumpkin pie; Vin: Domaine de la Solitude, Pessac-Leognan, 2015
Happy Thanksgiving !
