So this is a recipe you made in 2017? But you’re “creating” it in 2019? I feel so used!

In this episode... - Ben Stein and his love of squash. - Communism 101: How to make a salad for Thanksgiving. Yeah that pretty much sums it up

For sprouts, my mom does them, cut in half, pan cooked with some apricot preserves and crushed pecans. Sweet and savory and oh so good. Super simple too. Good for people who hate sprouts, because it makes them very sweet and covers up any unpleasant taste sprouts can sometimes have.

"i don't need salad at thanksgiving" ... that's the voice of reason right there. the living embodiment of the fact that the art form of cooking can coexist with rational intellect

Hey, BA, how about a thinly shaved raw brussels sprouts salad with a dried cranberry vinaigrette? Or a raw/massaged kale salad with roasted sweet potatoes, pecans, dried cherries or cranberries with an orange vinaigrette?

The fact that they made salad for Thanksgiving instead of mac and cheese triggers me endlessly. Sometimes I forget BA is a frou frou New York Magazine, but then they always find a way to remind me *cough*liquid mashed potatoes*cough*.

Everybody is talking about their chemistry or whatever, but these are people not actors. They made what looks like great dishes, that’s a success in itself. I’ll have to try the Brussels sprout one, maybe it’ll change my mind on how dirt flavored they are!

Kinda pissed off at these sides. Lol. Where is the green bean casserole and the sweet potatoes?
heythisistiana Il y a jour
Seeing all the comments/ criticism on claire in this video made me want to add on if anyone else has realised that her standards have dropped in gourmet makes? Like in recent episodes she didn't care as much as she did in the past about how accurate her gourmet versions are. Idk maybe she needs a break?

I was with Chris when he said he didn't need any lettuce with his Thanksgiving meal, but then he lost me when his dissed pomegranate. Lol.

At this point, I think the BA Test Kitchen Chefs revel in knowing no one will ever make their food. Building a side around an 898 squash? Which can't be bought at a store? It has to be bought as seeds and grown? Really? But your posting this video within 3 weeks of Thanksgiving, so there is no time to grow them even if you had the space and know how. I'm exasperated.

You could've had texture in the meal had y'all made mashed potatoes and not potato soup.

My favorite side for thanksgiving is bacon wrapped green bean bundles cooked in a brown sugar butter mixture

I have never in my life seen a salad like that. I'm sure it's great, but if I tried to serve that everyone would be asking 1) what is that 2) how do I serve/eat it
Geoffrey Alan
Geoffrey Alan Il y a jour
Jessica Eaves it was absolutely delicious. I had never seen anything like it either. The dressing was incredible and the salad didn’t wilt for DAYS.

Christina doesn’t seem like the talkative type. That’s probably why the editing makes Claire looks like she dominates.

The only thing they barely thought about was color. Everything is orangy brownish. The turkey, the cornbread stuffing, the roasted roots...kinda boring.

Sarah Fowler I did this with the 898 and delicata. The 898 was better, but delicata was a perfectly tasty substitute.

Squash and Brussels sprouts. As a Midwesterner this idea of having actual vegetables at the Thanksgiving dinner spread is foreign to me. Where's all the corn? The brown colored foods, mostly because the brown is tons of gravy on everything? Can I just melt marshmallows all over the veggies?

I need more Christina videos, seriously. Also, I love Claire but really steamrolled over some of Christina’s ideas
Meridien Il y a 3 jours
Claire totally overran Christina and I don't think they made a very good team. I'd like to see more of Christina in front of the camera too. Pair Claire with Molly or Carla but give Christina more air time. Try placing her with Chris or Priya!

I have to say, this is my least favorite episode of the series. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Claire, she is amazing, and I understand that she is used to running Gourmet Makes, so maybe her instincts to take charge may have kicked in; however, she completely walked all over Christina in this episode. I feel like Christina did not get to put in her creative ideas, and Claire got her way the entire episode. I wish Christina would have voiced her opinions more here, she had some good ones.

Did anyone else notice it said “episode 5: sides” and at the end it said next episode would be “episode 5: pies”

I usually only see Claire on her own or Claire with Brad that I’ve never realised that she has such a strong personality haha. (Or at least strong opinions about things.)
