In order to help you prepare Thanksgiving's most important dish, we have five recipes from esteemed local chefs to make your holiday feast magical.  

Givers & Shakers: Daniel Lurie, The Robin Hood

Sotheara Yem has tears in his eyes. Formerly one of San Francisco’s homeless, the 27-year-old is recalling the day one of his mentors, Tipping Point Community founder Daniel Lurie, purchased a sharp navy-blue designer suit for him. Yem, a first-generation Cambodian American, was scheduled to deliver a speech in front of 900 people at the 2011 Tipping Point benefit gala, and Lurie, who had helped the amateur filmmaker secure housing and employment, knew that a blazer from the clearance rack at H&M wouldn’t cut it.

Three Must-Have Recipes for Your Holiday Table

Pumpkin Ginger Flax and Walnut Bread

Whether you're channeling Martha or just trying to get through Thanksgiving without an exploding turkey, a solid holiday dish requires a hefty dose of fresh herbs to dial up the flavor and bring on the festivities. When prepping your dish, it's essential to start with fresh herbs for maximum impact. Sure, dried and powdered herbs work in a pinch, but there's no comparison to the real thing.

Meet Nick Dong, Oakland's Conceptual Metalsmith

Though artist Nick Dong often addresses such topics as materialism and human interaction in his thought-provoking work, the metalsmith and mixed-media sculptor is surprisingly easygoing. Many would be overcome by culture shock after a move from Taiwan to the United States, but Dong sees only the good: “There is such freeness here. I’m like a fish in water!”

Givers & Shakers: Vanessa Getty, Patron Saint of Animals

The vanity license plate on the 26-foot van parked outside the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) in Burlingame reads, “Fix Me.” The wordplay refers to the 900 free spay and neuter surgeries that have been performed inside the state-of-the-art mobile clinic each year since 2005, when the van was gifted to the organization by lifelong animal welfare activist Vanessa Getty. The reason? By fixing and vaccinating dogs and cats in low-income Bay Area communities, San Francisco Bay Humane Friends—an auxiliary of PHS/SPCA, founded by Getty—has greatly reduced the number of unwanted and stray animals on our streets.
