It’s that time of year when we’re dusting the flour off our aprons and rolling up our sleeves in the kitchen. Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, which usually means a flurry of activity—the yams! The rolls! That mind-boggling twelve pounds of bird! But this year, some of Austin’s finest chefs are lending home cooks a hand and sharing tried and true recipes from around their family table. We’ve rounded up some sumptuous recipes from Chefs Andrew Wiseheart (Contigo), Jack Gilmore (Jack Allen’s Kitchen), Bryce Gilmore (Barley Swine) and Kyle McKinney (Barley Swine). This will be one Thanksgiving you won’t forget.
It is not surprising to anyone who has spent a fair amount of time in Austin that we are known for our good food and good times. A city chock-full of culinary innovation and creative establishments, we've set the pace for others to follow.
