In Germany, Thanksgiving is celebrated as a harvest festival in early October. While his family never celebrated the holiday, he was a famous DJ and record producer Felix Jaehn is looking forward to having his first "real Thanksgiving" festival this year with some American friends and staying socially distant around the campfire.

"Personally, it's important that it's seasonal and local food because being grateful for the food that grows around me for the harvest is the key idea behind Thanksgiving for me. I think we'll try a vegan one Making burgers and I have some amazing vegan aioli that a friend makes. I'm going to toss some onions on it and instead of the bun I sometimes like to use portobello mushrooms because they make it extra juicy. That's a little trick of mine . And then we make baked potatoes with oil, salt and pepper as well as rosemary and thyme from the garden. "

Behind Louis the child Nicknames are two Chicago born producers named Freddy Kennett and Robby Hauldren.

Kennett: When I think of Thanksgiving, the first meal I think of is pumpkin pie! I love a good pumpkin pie, and my extended family would always have 6-10 different pumpkin pie at our Thanksgiving dinner. I would try them all and the sweet and tasty ones have always been my favorite. I remember there was a viral video going on for a year where someone was eating a Patti LaBelle pumpkin pie and they were screaming, “Ohh Patti !!! Patti !! My god Paatttii !! ! & # 39; And my family joked all night and said & # 39; Ohhh Patti !!! & # 39; "

Hauldron: I immediately think of mashed potatoes. I'm lactose intolerant so my mom is always kind enough to make me a separate batch of mashed potatoes without milk. They've always been my favorite Thanksgiving meal and the dish I grab seconds and thirds of. When I was very young, I ate 20 pounds of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving and then didn't eat anything for three weeks because I was so full. "

Together they recommend Kennett's morning visit, a Jimmy Dean & # 39; s breakfast sandwich, and Robby's proven recipe for sugar-free ice water. Here is a step-by-step guide.

Canadian powerhouse duo Boy bombs Maybe we don't necessarily recommend the dessert, which is anything but the sink that they put together for us in the video below, but it's definitely colorful.

“A few years ago we celebrated a nontraditional Thanksgiving Day together. Tristan decided to take care of dessert and instead of making a festive pumpkin pie, he created his own disaster piece. What sounded like a good idea on paper turned out to be the worst holiday creation of the century, and Martin can attest to it. "

"Thanksgiving has always been special to my family – we love to eat! Like a good Dr. Fresch set, staples in my family are remixes of classics; cranberry sauce is our family staple. What makes our sauce so unbelievably hot." If you are as tall as me and consequently have a better understanding of the palette, you will understand the importance of the sweet and savory combo on the big day.
