Samin Nosrat, the James Beard Award-winning writer behind stellar cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat and the Netflix series of the same name, has a few surprises up her sleeve for Thanksgiving this year.

According to our Automagic Menu Maker, Nosrat will boldly skip the turkey (and its mashed BFFs!), opting instead for a super juicy, feta-brined chicken, with lots of fresh green sides. But where does this leave stuffing?!, you might—like us—be frantically asking casually wondering.

Firmly on the table! Nosrat's selected a tangy, hearty sourdough and sausage number to accompany her bird.

Below, we've included all the highlights—or, you can check out Nosrat's full, detailed menu here. And if you're feeling inspired, you can design your own!
