Seasonal Recipes from Chef Tracey: Thanksgiving          

This month is all about food for us.  Here is one of my favorite line ups for Thanksgiving.  Don't miss out on Julie and Jaci's favorite autumn dishes either!

FIRST COURSE | Pumpkin Mole Soup with Cayenne Marshmallow 
Pumpkins!!  Most people think of carving pumpkins. I think of eating them, especially with fall spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. It's just so holiday & festive. Pumpkins are wonderful, seasonal, vegetable alternative. Which leads me to one of our favorite holiday pumpkin soup  from the Portalis recipe archive and cookbook. Awesome first course for Thanksgiving!  

SECOND COURSE | Endive Apple Salad
Fall salad are so creative.  Using your pumpkin seeds the pumpkin mole soup, you have a free ingredient! For a fall salad, I think of heartier green, such as the curly endive which is a bitter green. To sweeten up the tartness, just add fresh apples, another wonderful fall fruit. I like Granny Smith apples for this salad. Then I add fennel which has a licorice flavor and tastes great with the tart, sweet of the apple & endive. Top with roasted, salted pumpkin seeds and dress with an apple cider vinaigrette.  See dressing>>

THIRD COURSE | Roasted Duck with Orange Sage
Duck at Thanksgiving instead of turkey! I love doing duck. It's easy and way tastier. Get a whole duck (pretty readily available at Seattle grocery stores, for sure in the freezer section which works fine). Recipe>>

Apple Cranberry Galette
Easy, easy, easy & always delicious. These sold like hot cakes at Portalis. I always made homemade pie dough, but you can use store bought. A seasonal dessert & yummy. Recipe>>

Have a wonderful & delicious Thanksgiving!!
