Americans gather to celebrate Thanksgiving Day on the fourth Thursday in November and to feast on turkey, pumpkin pie, plus other treats we cannot resist...
Celebrate Thanksgiving Day with traditional turkey or simply a big slice of New York cheesecake – it's a great excuse to indulge.
Traditional with the trimmings
Serving sweet potato is also a Thanksgiving tradition. Try sweet potato fries as a side to the turkey, or go for a seasonal twist on another American classic with our bacon & pecan stuffing cornbread.
Sweet American favourites
Try baking an irresistibly rich and creamy New York cheesecake. While it's a classic American dessert, it's become a staple on British dessert menus. Cookies are also a popular American treat with good reason. Our recipe for all-American chocolate chunk cookies are chewy, moist and moreish.
Pie in the sky
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without a classic pumpkin pie or pecan pie. Serve either one with a dollop of cream and you're guaranteed to make your diners – whether they're American or not – very happy.
Bagels, burgers and good old Bourbon
Why not begin Thanksgiving with a New York-themed morning? Bagels for brunch are much easier to make than you may think. Or, for something more indulgent, try our ricotta, fig & sesame bagel. Later in the day, get spirts high with a Bourbon cocktail.
