Chicago Private Chef Austin’s Thanksgiving Menu

November 23rd, 2010

Can you believe it’s already Thanksgiving?   Where does all the time go?   For those who have too little time to whip up a big Thanksgiving holiday dinner with all the trimmings, a private chef is the perfect treat to relax and enjoy and extra-spectacular menu.

For those of us who won’t be able to enjoy the luxury of hiring a private chef this Thanksgiving, get ready to drool and perhaps find some holiday menu ideas and inspirations from our lead Chicago area chef, Austin, formerly of Grant Achatz’s Michelin-rated Alinea Restaurant.  Here is the menu he’s cooking for a special client this week.  Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
