Whether you're simply not a chef, or you're still doing celebrations a little bit smaller and different this year, Richmond has plenty of reasons to be thankful you don't have to cook this Thanksgiving. So go ahead and place an order, and prepare to celebrate this Thanksgiving with those you love while leaving the prep work to these five local businesses.
First things, first, you’re going to need dessert. From Sweet Potato to Apple Crumble, Chocolate Chess to a Vegan Pecan, Wildcraft Focacia Co. has a pie to suit your tastes. Try a Thanksgiving tart from Whisk, available in pumpkin ginger, caramel apple, or chocolate orange for an equally delicious pie alternative. Sure, pies and tarts usually get all of the fanfare for Thanksgiving, but the Gingersnap Ice Cream from Gelati Celesti will tempt even the most loyal pie eaters among us.
From a whole roasted turkey and Virginia ham, to Southern classics like ambrosia salad and pimiento cheese, as well as Thanksgiving staples like green bean casserole and mashed potatoes, Homemades by Suzanne's a la carte Thanksgiving menu has everything you need for a party of two or a party of 12.
Hard ciders are the perfect accompaniment to any Thanksgiving meal. Being the quintessential fall fruit, Apples pair well with nearly every Thanksgiving dish, making cider the ideal beverage for the day. Toast with those you're thankful for with one of Blue Bee Cider's finest.
