Taylor Made Café’s health-conscious epicures assemble nutritious Thanksgiving spreads filled with flavor, rather than fat. Dinner rolls and apple cobbler cobbled together with whole-wheat flour adorn each table, bookending a sumptuous feast comprised from a choice of four other sides. Chefs purée a classic cranberry sauce topped with orange zest, but abstain from added sugars, and baked yams arrive dressed for dinner with or without a decadent dusting of cinnamon and toasted pecans. Whole-wheat bread crumbs cloak a cast of mushrooms, carrots, celery, and dried cranberries to form a stuffing worthy of filling any turkey, tummy, or edible teddy bear. Veggie dishes such as butternut squash and brussels sprouts and bliss potatoes are given a sumptuously simple preparation, roasted in olive oil and seasoned with sea salt and black pepper. Chefs achieve a thick and creamy pumpkin soup without resorting to cream and steam carrots and parsnips with or without a sweet kiss of drizzled honey.
Orders for Thanksgiving sides should be placed on or before Saturday, November 19, and on feast day, hosts and hostesses can pick up ready-to-heat sides from the café anytime between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. All dishes demand nothing more than a quick reheating before serving, allowing holiday hosts to use time saved to ready homes with festive flair and Lincoln Log replicas of the Mayflower.
