            I have never in my life seen a salad like that. I'm sure it's great, but if I tried to serve that everyone would be asking 1) what is that 2) how do I serve/eat it

                  Pomegranate molasses is used a lot here in Turkey. Very underrated.

                            Christina doesn’t seem like the talkative type. That’s probably why the editing makes Claire looks like she dominates.

                              The only thing they barely thought about was color. Everything is orangy brownish. The turkey, the cornbread stuffing, the roasted roots...kinda boring.

                                          Why didn't they consider delicata? Definitely the best squash.

                                              Squash and Brussels sprouts. As a Midwesterner this idea of having actual vegetables at the Thanksgiving dinner spread is foreign to me. Where's all the corn? The brown colored foods, mostly because the brown is tons of gravy on everything? Can I just melt marshmallows all over the veggies?

                                                      Christina and brad together would make the most chill optimistic video ever.

                                                              Claire totally overran Christina and I don't think they made a very good team. I'd like to see more of Christina in front of the camera too. Pair Claire with Molly or Carla but give Christina more air time. Try placing her with Chris or Priya!

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Claire, she is amazing, and I understand that she is used to running Gourmet Makes, so maybe her instincts to take charge may have kicked in; however, she completely walked all over Christina in this episode. I feel like Christina did not get to put in her creative ideas, and Claire got her way the entire episode. I wish Christina would have voiced her opinions more here, she had some good ones.

                                                                    • Veronica Navarro

                                                                                • Chantal C

                                                                                  I don’t think Claire was being that bossy, I just think she’s used to running her own show and explaining everything narratively, and took charge because it’s what she’s used to. She’s also usually paired with other chefs like Brad who talk a lot as well.

                                                                                  I don’t think the editing did justice for either Christina or Claire. Christina did speak, it was just later in the episode so it seemed as though Claire took over.
