In seasonal chapters from New Year’s to the winter holidays, he provides curated and themed menus, easy to follow recipes, and kitchen tips. From casseroles and comfort foods, a Mardi Gras Jamboree, and a Polynesian Luau to a Goblin Feast and Thanksgiving Bons Temps Rouler, the dishes are just as delicious as they are picturesque!
