Traditions and rituals are part of what make holiday feasts special, but sometimes it can be even more fun to jazz up the typical dishes. Our Chef in Residence, Noreen Wasti, has created a delicious classic with a nontraditional twist: Olive Oil Cornbread with Warm Saffron Honey & Pumpkin Seeds.
"As a first-generation American and daughter of Pakistani immigrants our Thanksgivings always had a few twists and turns. Non-traditional mixed with the typical array of traditional dishes and a tandoori spiced turkey would somehow always end up on the table. Cornbread is a non-negotiable for me during the season and just like my Thanksgiving spreads growing up, this cornbread is a little different." -Noreen Wasti
"This recipe uses AWAKE adding richness to the batter and a deliciously moist crumb. But the best part, albeit my completely non-traditional touch, is a rich saffron honey with crunchy pumpkin seeds that gets generously doused on top." -Noreen Wasti
