Gourmet recipes for Thanksgiving

October 12, 2013

The festival of Thanksgiving dates back to ancient times. It was a celebration of Mother Earth: fertile, abundant, generous – the autumn festival, a celebration of agricultural harvests.

Today, the tradition is manly kept alive in the United States (where Thanksgiving day is probably the most important holiday of the year) and in Canada. Apparently in 1621, when Thanksgiving was celebrated for the first time on this continent, 140 people—Europeans who came to settle in America as well as Native Americans—feasted for three consecutive days! Already at that time, the main course was turkey.

That’s why turkey is still often the main star of this holiday feast. But for those of you who want to shake things up a little this year, here are some simple and easy-to-follow recipes in typical SOS Cuisine fashion, that will definitely impress your guests.

Happy Thanksgiving!
