      Happy Thanksgiving from our families to yours.

      Thank you for your continued support and trust in CBS. We're grateful for each and every one of you.

      We're going back to the universal language of love and a symbol of families for many: food.

      At times when our family is away, food, or the warm memories of gatherings bring us home.

      Our CBS family is happy to share with you this recipe book of our favorite dishes to bring us all closer this holiday season. When we can't celebrate the holiday season with those we love, we hope that sharing our favorite recipes brings some bright joy to you and yours.

      Know that CBS is always here for you, there is always someone on the other side of a phone. If you just need someone to talk to, give us a call. We are here to not only support your restaurants but your people as well.

      Please enjoy these recipes from our families' kitchens and some of our client's kitchens.
