Today we finally finished our Thanksgiving menu photo shoot, and I can honestly say that I am Thanksgivinged-out. But after cooking this menu over, and over, and over, I can also say that it rocks. It’s simple and sophisticated.

The rock star of today’s photo shoot was the pear-walnut tart with maple ice cream. After tweaking and changing the recipe a dozen times, we created the perfect Thanksgiving dessert to impress your guests. Not only is the tart pretty, it is delicious, and the nutty crust pairs perfectly with the maple ice cream.

After the photo shoot was done and the food could (finally) be eaten, the rest of the CHOW team came over and said that the tart was a “raging success.”
