Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, one my family adopted when we moved from Cambodia to France and then to the United States in 1978. Inspired by my Asian-French heritage, my Thanksgiving combines Eastern and Western flavors for a unique yet simple twist on the classic turkey dinner.

The menu changes, one year being more French-influenced than Asian and vice versa, but it always boasts contrasting flavors, textures and colors. Our turkey will be perfumed with a simple soy and ginger marinade and filled with a cilantro and mushroom sticky rice stuffing. It will be accompanied by colorful roasted root vegetables drizzled with a miso sauce and a refreshing salad of peppery greens with pears and crumbled walnuts—a true melting pot of a meal.
