Chestnuts
This rich velvety soup is a wonderful way to begin this festive meal.  If you can find jarred or frozen peeled chestnuts, it will cut down on your preparation time considerably.  If using fresh chestnuts, see the preparation instructions following in this recipe and plan to prepare them in advance. (Peeled chestnuts are sold at Asian markets at a fraction of the cost in supermarkets.) For a thinner but still rich soup, add up to one cup of almond milk close to serving time.Adapted from "Party Vegan" by Robin Robertson.

Watermelon margaritas
These are our antidote to the post-holiday blues: margaritas that are just different enough to make any long Thursday feel like the start of a four-day weekend, are excellent for serving a group of friends, and can be assembled in mere minutes. We’ve been making these for four years and we still can’t think of a better way to sample summer melons. When they are perfectly in season, you don’t even need the agave — your juice will be sweet enough as is. Now, where’s the pool?

Raw Pecans
Your favorite pumpkin pie just got better with a luscious pecan topping that adds a wonderful flavor and texture to this Thanksgiving institution. Since this pie needs to refrigerate for several hours before serving, it’s an ideal make-ahead dessert. It can be made up to a day in advance, although I think it tastes best if eaten on the same day that it is made. Adapted from "Party Vegan" by Robin Robertson.

Homemade Party Appetizer
By
If you need an appetizer recipe for your next kids’ party, try my recipe. 75 grams Flour, All Purpose ¼ teaspoons Salt 35 grams Butter, Chilled ¼ whole Egg Yolk, Beaten 35 milliliters Water Cooled 12 whole Chicken Or Similar Veggie Or Fish Nuggets (can Be Purchased From The Gr Sift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Next add approximately 1/4 of the beaten egg yolk and also add the water. Mix well your hands. Try to work quickly. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes. Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 10 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin. Next prepare the nuggets as per the packet instructions. (I used homemade cutlets). Let cool. Next cut the dough. You need two dough cutters – one beak/ head/neck shaped cutter and one wings shaped cutter. If you don’t have cutters draw a shape on a piece of paper and cut it out . Place the pattern on top of the dough and cut it out with a sharp knife. You’ll need to cut out 12 beak/head/neck shapes and 24 wings. Next place them on a greased baking tray and bake about 7 minutes at 180 C degrees or until the crust is light brown. Remove from oven and let cool. You are ready to decorate. Make three holes in the nuggets using a toothpick. Then stick in the wings and neck, pressing down to seal. I’ve done this in the photo above. After that, you can decorate the duck shaped appetizer with eyes and mouth/beak. I’ve done so in the photo using food coloring for the eyes and mouth/beak. Enjoy.

Tomato Party
The purpose of this salad is to make use of as many as possible of the infinite types of tomatoes that are available now. Some I cook a little, others more, and some I leave completely raw, to maximize the “tomatoey” effect with diverse flavors and textures. Choose whatever tomato selection you can get; the one below is just a suggestion. Instead of the Sardinian fregola (available from kalustyans.com), you can use Arab mograbiah (from Middle Eastern grocers) or Israeli couscous. Or just leave out the fregola and double the quantity of couscous.
