Break out the silver, splurge on caviar, and pop the pét-nat:

It’s time to take back the fanciest night of the year with our (mostly) make-ahead menu that’s as easy as it is elegant

Baked Oysters with Bacon and Leeks

Whip up the stuffing a day ahead and these baked oysters will come together in a cinch. When it comes time to plate, serve them on a bed of 
rock salt.

Deviled Ham Tartines with Radish

The beloved Southern spread, all classed up. Black Forest ham adds a subtle smoky note. Assemble the tartines right before serving.

Pickled Shrimp

Make this the day before you plan to serve it so the shrimp have time to soak up all the juicy goodness.

Caviar with Potato Chips and Crème Fraîche

Salty, tangy, crunchy—this high- low nibble practically begs for a sip of bubbles. It’s a great way to show off some of the stellar caviar being made in the South.

Butterbean Spread

The salted cooking water seasons these beans perfectly. Add a squeeze of lemon while you’re blending the spread for extra zing.
