Sarah Rich and Wendy MacNaughton happened upon a sketchbook at a book fair that turned out to be an unpublished 1945 manuscript by Cipe Pineles, the first female art director at Conde Nast. A Jewish immigrant from Eastern Europe, the manuscript was a hand-painted homage to her family’s good culture.
Half the battle of pulling off a successful Thanksgiving is about prep. How far in advance can we bake a pie and still have it delicious come Thursday? We’ve invited Noelle Carter of the LA Times and Good Food Pie Contest judge to talk shop.
While many will try and emulate the Norman Rockwell image of a beautifully basted turkey as their table’s centerpiece, others will forgo tradition and opt for a meal of uni, wagyu, and champagne. Lukshon and Father’s Office chef Sang Yoon suggests creating your own unconventional Thanksgiving memories.
