Planning Thanksgiving with Camille Styles Entertaining



That’s what brings me to sharing the amazing new book, Camille Styles Entertaining. Friends, when I received Camille’s book in the mail I knew that it would be incredible – I mean, her site is one of my favorites and she as a person is truly wonderful. I was floored by the text, recipes, photos and inspiration that lies within the pages of her book. It’s rare that I sit down with any book for more than 30 minutes, well this surpassed that mark by a landslide.



I got caught up in the beautiful recipes that are categorized by season, the text Camille wrote immediately drew me in and by the end of my time looking I found myself planning our entire Thanksgiving menu.

Lucky for us, Camille is sharing one of those recipes with us today – her Brussels Sprouts & Apple Salad with Cider Vinaigrette. Doesn’t that make your mouth water just reading it?



SALAD

1 cup golden raisins

2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (quartered if very large)

Extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

¾ teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

12 fresh thyme sprigs

1 cup walnuts

2 medium (or 1 large) apple, cored and thinly sliced

Sea salt

VINAIGRETTE

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons maple syrup

½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1.) Preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, cover golden raisins with hot water and let sit to plump.

2.) On a baking sheet lined with foil, toss Brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons of the maple syrup, a pinch of kosher salt, a few grinds of black pepper, and the red pepper flakes. Spread the sprouts in an even layer and roast for 10 minutes, just until they start to soften but before they turn golden.

3.) Add the red onion, thyme, and walnuts to the baking sheet. Toss everything together to combine, then spread in an even layer and roast for 10 more minutes, until the Brussels sprouts start to get golden and crispy on the edges.

4.) While everything roasts, make the vinaigrette. Whisk together the apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup. Slowly whisk in the olive oil and season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste.

5.) Drain the raisins and add them to the baking sheet with the apples. Toss everything together to combine, then return to the oven for just a few minutes so that everything warms through. Transfer to a serving bowl, toss with a small amount of the vinaigrette, and sprinkle everything with a bit of sea salt. Serve immediately. The vinaigrette will keep up to a week in the fridge.


Now for all of my Bay Area readers – I’m co-hosting Camille’s San Francisco Book Party with Erin from Apartment 34 and Minted. It’s truly going to be a night to remember. We’re hosting the party at Cookhouse (one of my favorite venues in SF). Join us for champagne cocktails, holiday cookies from Camille Styles Entertaining, and a holiday DIY you won’t want to miss. It’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. I hope to see all of you there!
