Until just a few days ago I wasn't quite sure where I would be setting my Thanksgiving table and I am quite excited to announce that I will be spending it in my new home state of California. Even typing that out, I am in disbelief that I am actually picking up and moving to San Francisco. Much more on this exciting move to come! For now, I wanted to share the ideas currently swirling through my head on how I will create a California casual Thanksgiving rooted in tradition. I am particularly inspired by the textural mix of cactus spines and dried leaves, as well as lightening up the menu with a grilled kale and fig based salad.
