Appetizers and Sides
Our sides are no mere accompaniments; they are culinary events in their own right. The French Onion Soup, with its rich broth and melted Gruyère, offers a warm embrace for the palate. Meanwhile, the Fondant Potatoes bring a sumptuous, buttery texture that complements the richness of the main course.
The classic French Onion Soup recipe is also the best! A rich and savory soup base and perfectly caramelized onions topped with bread and gooey French Cheese. It’s a rich and warming start to a gourmet Thanksgiving menu that will impress your family and friends out the gate!
Fancy Fondant Potatoes or Easy Fondant Potatoes
Check out our video recipe and learn how to make fancy French fondant potatoes as a fall dinner recipe or holiday side. Too fancy for you? Then try the easy fondant potato recipe in this same video!
So much better than a simple side salad, this fennel and orange salad will cleanse the palette as an post-meal salad (common in Italy) or offer a light and refreshing snack before the main course. Top the salad with some toasted or candied walnuts for an extra special holiday touch!

Fancy Desserts for a Gourmet Thanksgiving
A dessert that’s as dramatic as it is delicious. With its gooey, molten center and rich chocolate flavor, this dessert ensures that your gourmet Thanksgiving ends on a high note, both visually and gastronomically. If decadent dark chocolate isn’t a gourmet enough filling for you, see our tips on filling this molten dessert with pistachio butter or amarena cherry.
Your favorite gourmet ice cream (or gelato) flavors, layered atop your favorite cake base and surrounded by Swiss Meringue! Then (if you dare), pop it in the oven and set it on fire! You can’t get a more dramatic end to a gourmet Thanksgiving than that!
