The idea is that Thanksgiving can be simple and economical–in keeping with the times–yet be just as wonderful as in the best of days. Wangler, who is executive chef for the Kendall-Jackson Winery in Santa Rosa, demonstrates how he creates an easy Thanksgiving meal–much of it prepared in advance–for his friends and family at his home.

The article features 10 recipes and turkey preparation tips, as well as wine pairing suggestions with Kendall-Jackson’s Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling wines. It also directs readers to www.kj.com/bhg for special offers on the featured wines and video demonstrations of techniques described in the story.

“The purpose of this menu is to give those hosting Thanksgiving the gift of time,” Wangler says. “Life should have a balance of work and play. The same goes for this holiday. Get out of the kitchen and enjoy your company. That’s what you’ll remember most.”

Recipes include pumpkin corn bread, chardonnay-glazed carrots, a “make-ahead” Thanksgiving turkey, savory butternut squash dressing, pear and arugula salad, sweet potatoes with toasted pecans, pan-roasted Brussels sprouts, spiced cranberry sauce, “Priscilla’s Persimmon and Pomegranate Salad,” pecan cranberry tart, and sweet buttermilk ice cream.
