Thanksgiving Way Out West: Easy Squash and Corn Pudding from Nathalie Dupree


        

The year, for the first time ever, I am heading out to California to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with three of my favorite people on earth: my son, my daughter-in-law and my 6 year old grandson.  The minute I knew the trip was on, I was on the hunt for Thanksgiving recipes that would take into account that I’ve only cooked for cold weather Thanksgivings. 
In California, I can expect the temperature to rise to 70 degrees.   So I immediately enlisted the aid of my friend, Ana, who lives relatively close to my son and who obliged me with a list of ideas that were lighter, warm-weather friendly and perfect for a California Thanksgiving.  I took Ana up on her suggestions and starting with this recipe, I am going to share my discoveries over the next couple of days.   Ana told me that Corn Puddings have been all the rage the last couple of Thanksgivings in the southland.  So off I went and found a corn pudding so good, I couldn’t get over it.  And to top it all off, it was spectacular as a left over – which will give you something completely different to serve on what essentially is a 4 day food fest, Thursday to Sunday.

A visit to The Harrison and a recipe from Executive Chef and Next Iron Chef contestant, Amanda Freitag, for a Fall Squash Salad. And yes we got to meet her.




We’ve always had a soft spot for The Harrison, (355 Greenwich St. at Harrison (212) 274-9310 http://www.theharrison.com/ ). The restaurant was set to open the week of 9/11 2001. The World Trade Center stood at the end of Greenwich St. just 6 blocks south. Needless to say, the area was cordoned off and pretty much inaccessible for weeks and weeks afterwards. Fire trucks lined Greenwich St. You needed ID to go anywhere. But The Harrison’s two partners, Jimmy Bradley and Danny Abrams, hung in there and much to the amazement of pretty much everyone opened for business on October 26th, just 6 weeks after the cataclysm.
