Thanksgiving Table Traditions: Assembly Line, Family Style, or Plated?
I have hosted Thanksgiving dinner in my tiny NYC apartment for the past several years. Granted, we’re a small group, but each of my apartments over the years has held its unique challenges. For the one with a small oven we roasted cornish hens instead of turkey. We’ve skipped mashed potatoes for lack of mashing utensils. And because of table space issues, we usually fill our plates in an assembly line fashion right from the cooking vessels.
Given a larger table I imagine we’d bring all the dishes to the table. However, there’s something to be said for a minimalist table with space for candles and decorations, without extra cleaning for serving pieces.
