Soy Honey Miso Glazed Turkey by @alanakysar

 This stunning turkey is perfectly golden brown thanks to the soy, miso and honey mix it marinates in. The same marinade is boiled down and used at the glaze towards the end of roasting time. We love the use of oranges and persimmons on the platter with the turkey, it makes for a fun and festive presentation!

Asian Pear Shrub Prosecco with Gin and Rosemary by @bliu07

Start making this pear shrub a few days before Thanksgiving. It’s great mixed with the gin and prosecco called for in the recipe, but works well with any spirit you have on hand!
