We asked The Kitchy Kitchen's Claire Thomas to share her ultimate Thanksgiving menu. Check out all the recipes!

Brown Butter Butternut Squash Soup

This is the perfect Thanksgiving dinner soup. Comforting and a little decadent, it also looks beautiful in the bowl. The combination of sweet, tart, smoky, and brown-buttery is a definite crowd pleaser.

Roast Chicken

Roast chicken embodies comfort. It's a meal that’s meant to be shared and devoured, so what are you waiting for?

Red Ale Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce gets depth and tartness from Flemish red ale, a type of sour beer. If you can't hunt it down, wine plus some balsamic vinegar does the trick.

Roasted Curried Carrot Salad with Raisins and Pine Nuts

The curry vinaigrette cuts through the sweetness of the carrots, and the pop of raisins and crunch of pine-nuts add a little bit of texture to this warm salad.

Salty, sweet and creamy indeed. This cheesecake recipe is almost silly it's so delicious.

Tina's Pumpkin Pecan Pie

What is Thanksgiving without pie? This one is spicy and rich, but not heavy, and has a brown sugar butter pecan crust. It's perfect.

We asked food blogger, food stylist, commercial director and food photographer Claire Thomas to create her ultimate Thanksgiving menu using Kitchen Daily's Host Handbook. Claire selected a warm soup to start, which can also appease vegetarians, unusually a roast chicken instead of a turkey, and a combination of pumpkin and pecan pie for dessert.

Check out the slideshow above for the recipes on her Thanksgiving menu and head to Host Handbook where Kitchen Daily helps you plan your next event, from menus to invitations.
