Part II: A Change From Traditional

Typically, I hate most human beings. So it is odd that I opened my mouth and decided to host Thanksgiving last year. “Who cares,” I thought as I believe humans aren’t the main show. It is all about the food on thanksgiving. People just get in the way.

This year, rather than making the traditional butt stuffing, I wanted something a little more brighter. The traditional butt stuffing is savory heaven and is a must for the holidays. So I decided to outsource that recipe to a family member and focus on experimentation. Knowing that good stuffing exists in the hopes that things don’t work out is a necessity on the biggest day of butt stuffing.

Cranberries and Butter

2017 is the year of contrasting flavors. I am really getting a kick out of assumptions of an up-front flavor being smashed instantly by the after taste. Salty and sweet, especially involving fish sauce seen in your favorite Vietnamese dishes is a prime example of this contrasting love. In this particular experiment, I want to give the taster a sense of comfort and familiarity. This will be provided by the typical flavors found in stuffing: salt, thyme, butter, and parsley will be apart of the lineup. Joining these friends is a new player in this space for me, though perhaps not that unfamiliar to many, especially during this time. I am of course talking about cranberries.

I wanted to somewhat encapsulate a lot of flavors found in your typical Thanksgiving dinner in one complete bite. I will say that I did not accomplish this. I played it too conservatively and created a dish that is sparser in the encapsulated desired flavor. However, when one did get the pleasure of getting the “perfect bite”, I will say that no one thinking about the traditional butt stuffing.
