Jonathan Waxman’s Thanksgiving Brussels Sprouts

It was such a pleasure getting into the kitchen at Barbuto NYC with master chef Jonathan Waxman (see the feature here!) He gave me some amazing tips on how to spice up my uber traditional Thanksgiving meal, one of which was this special brussels sprouts recipe involving a heavenly combo of garlic, parmesan and cream. Can you say swoon? I highly recommend trying it out for yourself–after all, what’s Thanksgiving without a little indulgence?
