Michael Symon knows a thing or two about Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, he's already prepared two this year. The chef told Food and Wine Magazine that by the end of July the had prepared one traditional Midwestern meal with all the Thanksgiving trimmings in his Manhattan apartment and a second on the set of Iron Chef America's Thanksgiving Battle. Many of Chef Symon’s dishes are Greek-inspired, adding flavorful twists to some of the old standards.
