    Some say that Thanksgiving is all about the bird. But, we'd like to formally submit our argument that it's really all about the peripherals. Though the turkey may sit front and center on the dinner table, it's the sides that make this day a real feast. So, we spent a day with Vinegar Hill House's executive chef Brian Leth to get some special ideas to officially up our cooking game.

    Leth invited us to his restaurant for some one-on-one cooking lessons, and proceeded to demonstrate exactly why we had come seeking his help in the first place. His prowess in the kitchen is nothing short of amazing — especially when we learned Leth had never attended culinary school. But, his extensive on-the-job training, including an impressive stint at Prune, shines through. Not only were the results to die for, but the recipes are totally doable — no Pinterest fails, here. Ahead, Leth's creations for three Turkey Day side dishes that are anything but side kicks — poultry namesakes be damned.
