Not everyone is in agreement as to what dishes make a great Thanksgiving dinner. We dug around and asked some of our favorite chefs what their Thanksgiving dealbreakers were -- which dishes must be served, which rules could not be broken -- and here's what they told us.
While it’s a given that most chefs draw their plating inspiration from the art world, occasionally their dishes verge from mere inspiration to recognizable if not conscious homage. Because we love art, food that looks pretty, and opportunities to sound pretentious, we scoured modernist art and found that, in many cases, plates and paintings sometimes look eerily similar. (But as Big Bird once said, don’t eat the pictures.)
