When is comes to Thanksgiving, Karry Hosford pulls out the good stuff—her family silver, china and crystal. But this mother of three and contributing photographer for Relish injects comfort into the rest of the big meal. Guest are casually attired and the children are never relegated to a kids’ table—they join right in the celebration.

Karry and her chef-husband Doug add contemporary twists to traditional Southern dishes, and they design their menu to reflect Karry’s relaxed style and Doug’s Southern roots. Bacon and pecans abound in everything from the salad to the sweet potato casserole. And more than a little bourbon is enjoyed before the meal.

Family heirlooms share the stage with creative Thanksgiving fare, making for a celebration that’s Southern comfort at it’s best: good food, good friends and good drink.
