Thanksgiving 2009

Note: Everything here is homemade. The liver mousse is homemade. The crab salad is homemade. The soup is homemade. The syrups in the cocktails are homemade. The mayonnaise in the deviled eggs (which are home-pickled, like the onions) are homemade. The candied nuts and seeds are homemade. The sorbet is homemade. The beets, the carrots, the broccolini, the kale, and the brussels sprouts, along with most of the herbs, come from our garden so they're extra homemade. The only thing on the table that is not homemade are the peas, which are their own story. Their own very exciting story.
