Bringing a dish to Thanksgiving dinner brings about a multitude of considerations. Will your fellow diners appreciate an elaborate cider-glazed turkey rubbed with gourmet spices or would a giant bottle of wine suffice? Chow put together this helpful flow chart for those of us still deciding which direction to take.
I'll admit that the giant bottle of wine has taken center stage at more than one Thanksgiving I've attended. Don't knock it! In general, this flow chart hones in an important rule of thumb for Thanksgiving cooking: consider your audience. Even if you make the best turducken around, if the majority of guests are vegetarian, your dish won't be a hit.
