    Before the turkey hits the oven, be sure to equip your kitchen with the proper cookware and bakeware to ensure your dinner is a meal to remember. A Dutch oven not only cooks food to perfection, but also looks stunning on your stovetop, while a pie dish in an autumnal hue will look beautiful on your tabletop. And don’t forget the servingware! From chic cocktail glasses to earthy stoneware, these pieces will add some elevated charm to your Thanksgiving table.
