Menu: The meal begins with a warm Delicata squash soup flavored with apple butter, cinnamon and sage oil. Next, dig into the beet and Bartlett pear salad, a Dungeness crab risotto with roasted salsify or Liberty Farms duck breast with a caramelized onion pancake and foie gras. The traditional turkey dinner is served with sweet potatoes, corn bread stuffing and giblet gravy. (Other options: roasted sea bass with chowder or a beef tenderloin with cauliflower gratin and black truffle jus.) Sides are large enough for the table to share and include whipped Yukon gold potato puree, caramelized carrots and brussels sprouts and traditional stuffing. The pumpkin pie comes topped with caramel and dark chocolate, while the apple turnover is served a la mode.
