From the editors of Fine Cooking Magazine, this book was originally released in 2012. Some of the topics covered in this one are: avoiding dinner disasters (like a frozen bird); helpful techniques; make a head strategies; (6) different ways to cook a turkey; leftover and recipe options and a baking section.
There are lots of appetizers to try: I'm planning on trying: Crostini with Beef and horseradish cream, and a Cranberry and Pear salsa from this book. I also will experiment with a few new sides before Thanksgiving and a Triple Chocolate Cheesecake.
There are also plenty of soups, salads and gravies; many veggie dishes and sides; different kinds of potato, stuffing and gravy options and desserts to die for -- pies, tarts and more. I liked the section on "continuing the feast", with plenty of ideas for leftovers as well.
Great illustrations and simple to understand recipes for even novice cooks. Worth Buying.
Guidance is given at the start for those who have not had to host a Thanksgiving feast, yet it could be worth casting an eye over for everybody as it might yield a few hints, tips or new ideas that you hadn't considered before. Then it is straight onto the recipes, split between appetisers; soups, salads and cranberry sauce; turkey, stuffing and gravy; vegetables; potatoes & grains; pies & tarts: desserts and finally what to do with the remains… You need to look through this book sequentially at least once to get the most out of it as some of the hints and tips can be found tucked in-between recipes and thus easy to overlook if you are not careful.
This book was particularly interesting to this reviewer, who has never celebrated a Thanksgiving feast but as a Brit Turkey is a traditional Christmas Day staple, as there were many new and quite exciting recipes to try. Of course, if you have a family tradition of only making your meal in a certain way you might overcome some resistance but it could be worth a try! In fact many of these recipes will be eminently suitable for any time of the year so it is unfortunate that many might just pull this book out for Thanksgiving and not consult it again for another 11-and-a-half months.
The recipes are very clearly written, informative and take things in a logical, structured manner including telling you what to make ahead of time and when.Read more ›
Or maybe you love the holidays and start counting down to Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Christmas-in-July sales events. You're the one who opens the doors of your home and your kitchen to a dozen or more guests with whom you're thrilled to share the flavorful, hard-won fruits of your labors. You spend all year collecting new recipes to use and squirreling away appropriate decorations to whip out the moment Halloween is over.
Good news: I have a Thanksgiving cookbook (though recipes can apply to any time of the year and any holiday) that addresses both of you.
The editors of Fine Cooking present the FINE COOKING THANKSGIVING COOKBOOK, your one-stop save for new recipe ideas, step-by-step how-to instructions, innumerable tips, and wisdom for what to do if something should go wrong.
Consider it the only cookbook you'll ever need for all the Thanksgiving basics, from how big a turkey you'll need to what to do with the giblets (yes, you'll learn what those are, too, if you're unfamiliar). Thanksgiving will never be so simple.
Follow the carefully crafted directions, so detailed and approachable and so chock full of things to remember and watch for that even a beginning cook will be able to tackle any of the recipes, to create any of the included recipes (and there are dozens from which to choose).Read more ›
