nouveaux turkey

saturday night, saundi, a.p. and I headed into west hollywood to the warm and welcoming home of laura, saundi's iowa-bred co-worker. I don't think I've ever met anyone from iowa. they. are. nice. anyhoo, laura who is a wonderfully warm and creative interior designer opened up her home so that her roomie (also from iowa. two in one week!?) who works for bon appetit magazine could cook their foodie version of a thanksgiving dinner. the chef kicked off the meal with a turkey burger made with sage and rosemary and a cranberry mustard drizzle. scrumptious. her sides were sweet potato spears peppered with parsley. to cleanse the palette we were given hearty pumpkin shakes with caramel liqueur and to finish, cranberry torte worthy of a james beard award. it was a great time, great company, great food and great idea for the twenty-somethings that like to get creative in their holiday traditions. bon appetit turkey!
