Lee Hefter's Family Thanksgiving
Winter Squash Soup with Pie Spices
Herb-Roasted Turkey with Maple Gravy
Even though he’s lived in Los Angeles for 11 years, Hefter gravitates to people from the East Coast, who, like him, might have seen the fall foliage every year and watched maple syrup being tapped. “When you grow up with these memories,” he says, “you want to share them.” He thinks adding maple syrup to gravy makes it go better with all the traditional Thanksgiving side dishes.
Creamed Cipollini Onions and Mushrooms
Brussels Sprouts with Chestnuts and Bacon
The pleasantly bitter brussels sprouts sautéed with chestnuts and smoked bacon are a perfect side dish.
