Tom Valenti's Italian-Influenced Thanksgiving
Chef Tom Valenti's Italian-inspired Thanksgiving menu includes butternut squash soup with pancetta and polenta with wild mushrooms.
These parfaits, layers of spice cake with sautéed apples and whipped cream, can be assembled in advance in individual glasses or one large glass bowl. “Thanksgiving is supposed to be a relaxed holiday. I’s not designed to be a decathlon—throwing the shot put, running the mile,” Valenti says.
