Chef Bill Fuller’s very first article for Eat.big outlines his Thanksgiving strategies, including recipes for turkey with stuffing, gravy, Brussels sprouts with aged Virginia ham, homemade cranberry sauce, crème brûlée and pear/apple crisp/cobbler. Like these enduring dishes, his T-Day battle plan still holds sway in the Fuller household.
Surprisingly to most people, I look forward to cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Autumn cooking is so satisfying. Roasting and braising. Butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, short ribs, pork, duck. Rich flavors and full bellies. Thanksgiving is the Superbowl of the season. I make pretty much the same meal every year.
