Class Description: We're proud to partner withBon Appétit—the definitive authority on what's current in the world of food, drink and entertaining—to teach you how to make classic Thanksgiving recipes with a twist and keep your meal exciting year after year. You’ll work alongside classmates to make tested and approved recipes from Bon Appétit, with foolproof tips and timesaving techniques to help you cook with confidence.

First, you’ll learn how to caramelize (without burning, steaming, or sautéing) to make a sweet-and-salty one-bite snack. Then, you’ll roast a hassle-free bird that’s full of flavor, thanks to a super-easy dry brining method and no-roux gravy.

Next, you’ll practice blistering green beans for the perfect seared, crunchy texture, and discover how to get perfectly smooth, make-ahead (yes, seriously) mashed potatoes. Finally, you’ll whip up a tart with a press-in crust and short bake time that’s guaranteed to cure pumpkin-pie fatigue.
