The Thanksgiving Guide
By Tuckernuck on
Meet Serena Wolf, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, private chef, culinary instructor, recipe developer, and cookbook author, to name a few of her roles. Through her straightforward and (mostly) nutritious recipes, Serena makes a healthy lifestyle easy, realistic, and always fun.
Apart from her culinary expertise, Serena is a go-to lifestyle guru. Just read her blog or follow her on Instagram, and you’ll discover a thing or two on fashion styling, glow-boosting skincare routines, and “medium-trashy,” can’t-put-down reads.
This Thanksgiving, we join Serena in her NYC loft to prepare her holiday dinner, complete with a warm and inviting table setting.
Admittedly one of her favorite traditions each year is a pre-dinner bath, glass of champagne, and Thanksgiving episode of Friends. However, sharing what she and her guests are grateful for in the given year is high on her list as well. Read on for Serena’s full Thanksgiving guide, her favorite recipes (read: don’t forget your greens), prepping advice, entertaining tips, and outfits that will keep you chic while still letting you eat.
“Organization is key! Set your menu and make your grocery list about a week in advance, so that you can do as much of your shopping as possible. Then make a prep schedule with time stamps to help keep you on track. Figure out what dishes can be prepped in advance and try to tackle those 1-2 days before. Think: make cranberry sauce, stale bread for stuffing, chop vegetables, peel and slice potatoes, make sauces and dressings. I also like to set the table, pick out my outfit, and determine the playlist the night before.”
