Thanksgiving is upon us, which means Friendsgiving is even sooner. While the big, traditional feast typically boasts an abundance of gourmet dishes, Friendsgiving offers up something on the lighter side. This non-traditional tradition allows us to let loose and feast casually with your Atelier neighbors before bracing ourselves for a night of 21 questions with our inquisitive relatives. We’ve gathered a few different plates that we feel strike the balance between simple and satisfying.
