Aran’s Cheese Board

Start your Thanksgiving dinner with the perfect cheese board. Author Aran Goyoaga shares her tips for how to build the cheese plate that best suits your guests and your meal!

Main Dish of Buttermilk-Brined Roasted Chicken with Roasted Potatoes

Thanksgiving dinner might not call for a turkey this year, especially if your celebration is smaller than usual. This recipe gives you the bird without the hassle. Best part, Aran includes a substitution for the Buttermilk if dairy isn’t currently in your diet! The crisp, buttery potatoes (made the English way!) perfectly compliment the roasted chicken.

Side Dish of Artichoke, Fennel, Sugar Snap Pea, and Parmesan Salad

This salad is light, bright, and the perfect contrast to the rich chicken and potatoes.

Dessert of Chocolate, Olive Oil, and Citrus Cake

Once you have tried this cake, you won’t want any other! The crunchy crust. The tender, brownie-like interior. This cake is a bit sweet, a bit salty, and just a little tart. Best served with coffee!
