    Everyone knows that the radicchio is just going to be garnish that gets left behind on the platter at a regular family Thanksgiving.

    I found this really hard to watch. I considered that maybe Claire has more experience on videos, and that I do like Claire. However, she really overpowered Christina, and was really pushy and overbearing. I love Christina! Maybe not a good duo for future videos.

    Seemed like very little curiosity and experimentation compared to the other episodes. It’s like they (she) had the entire thing decided beforehand.

    I guess I don't see Claire as bossy and Christine as quiet. Christine called them both out for being upset about brussel sprouts and being burnt. Claire is a talker and has a regular show she hosts. Just like Brad can talk to much so can Claire. Heck Andy was lying behind Brad's back instead of just saying no and then was wrong! But they worked well together. I liked Christina and Claire. Christina was like well...we have erred let's take a break. I like em

    Claire does not play well with others, which made me disappointed and frankly sad for Christina. Also, are we going to completely ignore the fact that nobody is ever going to make a radicchio salad with giant halves of squash. I'd be delegated to picking up the buns on the way to thanksgiving if I tried bringing that crap to the table.

    I want to make the brussel sprouts, but I wanted to ask the collective... how do you think bacon would taste added to it? I am intrigued by the date molasses but also I want bacon on my Thanksgiving veggie.

    For sprouts, my mom does them, cut in half, pan cooked with some apricot preserves and crushed pecans. Sweet and savory and oh so good. Super simple too. Good for people who hate sprouts, because it makes them very sweet and covers up any unpleasant taste sprouts can sometimes have.

    "i don't need lettuce at thanksgiving" ... that's the voice of reason right there. the living embodiment of the fact that the art form of cooking can coexist with rational intellect
