We visit with chef Ian Ray at Tavern Americana. Ian will give you a new approach to a traditional Thanksgiving dish, the green bean casserole by adding a few new wrinkles.
To give this old-time favorite a bit of a kick, Ian adds leeks, bacon and shallots. The green beans will be blanched and shocked, then baked to maintain a bit of their original texture. Ian’s finished product will have more color, texture and flavor than the casserole your accustomed to. Your guests will rave at the results.
Tavern Americana aims to be your new local hangout. With a wonderful wine cellar and your favorite beers on tap, they take a new approach to food, one that is comfortable with an upscale twist.
