From The Hive: A day being preoccupied with a giant bird in your oven doesn’t sound like something to celebrate? Give yourself a break this year and celebrate thanks with mouthwatering selections from four-time James Beard Award Semifinalist executive chef Matthew McClure at The Hive’s Thanksgiving celebration. Friends will be impressed. Family will be thankful.
