There are only a few more months until PLATFORM’s doors are open in Hayden Tract and Los Angeles finally has a taste of New York’s The Cannibal Beer and Butcher. While we’re very antsy for the New York-based charcuterie-and-beer counter to open, we can only wait, however, Chef Francis Derby of has given us a sneak peek of the flavors of Cannibal that we can expect come next Spring this Thanksgiving!

Made with the ingredients right at your own home along with some of the leftover turkey that you’ll have tonight, Chef Francis has whipped up a recipe that you can do right at home and enjoy this holiday weekend. Safe to say we’re very thankful for this teaser recipe right from the Cannibal’s kitchen. Bon appetit!
