From WAMU:

Hosting 40 adults and kids for Thanksgiving is a nightmare for some. For Washingtonian Charles Duan, his wife Jenny, and their two kids Alex and Teddy, it was nothing more than an exciting challenge they undertook in 2018.

As if cooking for that many people in their Adams Morgan condo wasn’t enough, the Duans wanted to blend local flavors into their holiday menu. The result? Five unique recipes that they developed for a distinctly D.C. Thanksgiving: Mushroom Injera Stuffing, Cranberry Mumbo Sauce, Half-Smoke Green Beans, Sweet Potato Pupusas and Chicken Yassa Casserole & Stuffing.

Listen to Ruth and Patrick interview Charles about their D.C. Thanksgiving, and try his family’s recipes on your own.
