Jose Garces's Spanish-Inspired Thanksgiving Dinner
Chef Jose Garces’s Thanksgiving menu includes a glorious citrus-marinated turkey and sweet potatoes with chile-spiced pecans.
Garces learned how to make a classic potato gratin while studying at Kendall College’s cooking school in Chicago. It’s still one of his favorite side dishes. This version combines lots of sharp, nutty Manchego cheese and smoky San Simòn cheese (Gouda is a fine substitute) for rich, complex flavor.
