Episode Info:

Can you believe that the holidays are just around the corner? I’ll be hosting Thanksgiving this year and am excited to be in menu planning mode. I know cooking a big holiday meal can feel quite intimidating, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience entertaining. So as someone who’s planned and cooked a lot of big meals for friends and family and clients during my catering days, I wanted to pass on celebratory meal planning system.

With the right kind of planning and organization, you’ll be able to create an incredible feast without stress and anxiety. In this podcast episode, I’ll share:

  1. How to create a holiday menu that won’t have you cooking for days
  2. The Excel template that I use to make sure my big holiday dinner goes off without a hitch
  3. How to prepare your kitchen for extra helpers 

And even if you’re not hosting Thanksgiving, these “big meal” planning tips can be used for any large gathering you might plan in the future. Have a listen and gain the confidence you need to rock a big holiday dinner!
