No Shortage of Props
These are just some of the countless pieces of equipment needed to execute Thanksgiving Live, including the pots and pans for Bobby, Giada, Alton and Ina, plus serving platters and utensils, as well as a mix of classic and rustic canisters to adorn the set.
Setting the Scene
All it takes is a few colorful gourds and flower-filled vases to turn Food Network Kitchens into a seasonal space worthy of the Thanksgiving feast.
To help the team in Food Network Kitchens keep track of the myriad items needed to not only prepare but serve the multiple components of each star's dish, dedicated baking sheets are filled with the various tools and products needed to make a specific dish's components.
Fans can take a lesson from Food Network Kitchens in the way the team's preparing for Thanksgiving Live. A few days before Turkey Day, set out the platters and utensils you're planning on using, then label them with what dish they'll eventually hold.
Look out for this traditional gravy boat on TV, as it may be home to Alton's smooth turkey topper on Saturday.
Each chef's workstation will likely be outfitted with a knife block studded with sharp steel blades.
Turkey Day Essentials
Brussels sprouts, garlic, potatoes and more fresh produce will likely be stars of your Thanksgiving feast — and they're must-have ingredients in the chefs' dishes as well.
