Many people will be hosting smaller and more intimate Thanksgiving gatherings this year, and figuring out recipes that won’t leave you with tons of leftovers can be tricky. You don’t want to add in the wrong amount of ingredients and throw off the taste, but you also don’t want to cook for 12 when you’re expecting two. Thankfully, there’s a cookbook for that! Cynthia Graubart, a James Beard Award-winning author, knows all about how to downsize a traditional Thanksgiving feast so you can still enjoy all of your favorite dishes. Whether you’re celebrating with a few friends, loved ones, or just one other turkey partner, Graubart’s Thanksgiving For Two (or Four) provides recipes that are sized just right.
“[Many] young people who are used to going home for Thanksgiving are faced with addressing the holiday kitchen for the first time,” Graubart told POPSUGAR. “I wanted to create simple, delicious recipes that were easy to prepare, full of fresh ingredients, that would make them think of home.” When you’re new at the Thanksgiving game like me, this cookbook is perfect, but it works just as well for pros in the kitchen!
