You start with a theme, essentially telling the generator what kind of Thanksgiving cook/personality you are. From "purist" to "modernist" to "baconist," everyone will find an affinity within their seven starter categories. You then move on to make big decisions about your preferences when it comes down to each coarse of the meal. I chose "purist" and indicated that I didn't have much of a stuffing preference, that I liked greens and cranberries at the table, pumpkin for dessert is nice, and I'd opt for cool and creamy on the cocktail side of things. My menu sounded wonderful: Roast Turkey, Sausage and Mushroom Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry Sauce, Brandied Pumpkin and Chestnut Pie, and Milk Punch. I'm sold.
