Mary Sue Milliken, chef at Border Grill
in Los Angeles, travels each Thanksgiving to her mother-in-law's Kansas home, where an army of family members helps her cook the fabled yearly feast. Recreate her favorite dishes with this menu, including a crisp-skinned roast turkey with celery-root stuffing, creamy mashed potatoes enriched with crème fraîche and butter, quick-pickled shallots sautéed with green beans, a warm and decadent chestnut compote, sweet pear and ginger pie with a hint of spice, and more.
