This is my first post of this type. I was asked to share recipes from an up and coming Chef in the New York restaurant scene. I was neither paid for this post, nor have I ever tasted this chef’s dishes. But Bill Rosenberg, the Executive Chef of Noma Social is a chance to share with you and me, some less traditional Thanksgiving recipes. These recipes will give you a different flair and some new ideas for your Thanksgiving.
I think we all struggle with the idea of what to serve for appetizers. People arrive early to gather, socialize and catch up. We have to feed them but we don’t want them to fill up. Actually, I don’t want to fill up. I want the main course. This is the one meal of the year that the main course is what it is all about. Do you agree? This Butternut Squash Soup is a perfect fall recipe that is not too heavy.
If you would like any of Bill’s recipes posted here, please leave your email address in the comment section and I will forward the recipe to you.
I am going to start these recipes with the main course. Bill has made a Latin twist to his turkey. This is totally up my alley. I really like this spin and the inclusion of cumin, ancho chili and citrus.
Your Thanksgiving meal is not complete without awesome sides. I think you will agree that these Thanksgiving – Restaurant Style still gives us the traditional recipes we have also comfortable and familiar with. The first side is Mashed Brown Sugar Sweet Potatoes. These will definitely be sweet. The sweetness, though, will be a perfect compliment to the spice of the turkey.
Another traditional side is green beans. I think the recipe I think of most often is a green bean casserole that I shared in my most recent Friday Five – Thanksgiving Sides. These are Green Beans Almondine which is a little more restaurant like. Don’t you agree?
My regular readers know that I love cornbread. I make it often and have made a number of different kinds and used different cooking styles. This link takes you to a recent post. Chef Bill’s cornbread looks really good too.
Whether you have room or not, no Thanksgiving meal is complete without dessert. This dessert uses sweet potatoes which is totally an autumn ingredient but does not skimp on the sweetness. This is Chef Bill’s Sweet Potato Pie.
