Thanksgiving is truly a special day that kicks off the holiday entertaining season. It is a time to celebrate family and friends while focusing on being thankful and generous to others. Nothing says Thanksgiving more than friends and family gathered around a decadent table laden with roasted turkey, savory stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course, pumpkin pie. Those familiar with hosting a holiday dinner know that there is a great deal preparation to prepare for a lavish meal. A key ingredient for successful holiday entertaining is a well-planned kitchen. Just like in real estate, location is everything be it a house on the water or the Viking range and Sub Zero refrigerator. These are some of our favorite spots to whip up something delicious and toast the season here in the Hamptons and across the North Fork of Long Island.
