Just in time for Thanksgiving meal prep, Executive Chef Ian Rynecki shares his family’s annual Thanksgiving menu. Not a chef but assigned to bring a dish for Thanksgiving this year? Want to branch out from your typical mac and cheese? Fear not, from stuffing to pie, Chef Ian’s menu has inspiration for every type of foodie!

In the Rynecki household, Thanksgiving is a very important holiday, even more so than Christmas. This Thanksgiving menu has been made for as long as Chef Ian can remember, and now with multiple professional cooks in the family, there’s a little friendly competition (and, we mean in the kitchen, not on the football field!) when it comes to Thanksgiving day. Chef Ian shares that “we are always trying to one up each other while staying true to the roots of each dish.” For inspiration, keep reading for the Rynecki Family Thanksgiving Menu. Happy Cooking!
