The smell of Thanksgiving dinner is among us, and celebrity chefs are busy whipping up intriguing feasts for their clients.
Ten of the best celebrity chefs are sharing their favorite holiday recipes, from traditional spreads to unique takes — and all are sure to perk up your palette.
Chef Floyd Cardoz known for his contemporary Indian cuisine restaurant, Tabla in New York City kicks off the first course with his pumpkin soup from his new restaurant, Paowalla. His take on the traditional soup includes adding chipotle chili, fresh ginger, spices, and herbs, and adds a touch of luxury with delicate crabmeat. Some of his celebrity clients to dine at Tabla include Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Hurley, and Kate Moss.
Stuffing is a Thanksgiving staple — but if you’re wondering how to kick things up this year, look no further than chef Stephan Pyles’ Tex-Mex cooking at Flora Street Café in Dallas. The pioneer in Texas cooking takes the classic roasted bird and fills it with Texas staples such as spicy chorizo, Serrano chilies, and chayote squash. Instead of bread, he uses crumbled blue corn skillet sticks, a trick that deserves its own spotlight.
Chris Cosentino from Las Alcoves resort in Napa Valley likes to brine his bird with herbs and maple syrup and smoked over pinecones and hay. We hear it doesn’t disappoint!
Don’t forget to top off your meal with dessert. The granola cranberry tart from Laurent Tourondel of L’Amico, New York City is one to hit the spot. Chef Laurent Tourondel specializes in rustic Italian cooking and he took a similar approach when creating this delicious treat!
