We’ve got you covered this Thanksgiving: our favourites for the perfect, colourful meal.

Is there a better food holiday than Thanksgiving? Our main rule for the dinner table: bring in as many colours as possible. So this menu features bright red beets, gorgeous green Brussels sprouts and sunny orange sweet potatoes. But sweet corn and a green salad would be welcome additions. Hit the last of the farmers’ markets, load up, and most importantly—love the ones your with.
