Amazon.com Review

Thanksgiving: a time for family, friends, and huge platters of savory foodstuffs. Every year you look forward to a slow-roasted turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, and succulent dressing. Sometimes you get it. Other times, the turkey is dry, the dressing overseasoned, and the marshmallow sweet potato casserole gloppy. Whether you need to improve your traditional repertoire or you're looking for new recipes, The Thanksgiving Cookbook is the way to go.

Filled with traditional, variations-on-the-traditional, and nouveau recipes, The Thanksgiving Cookbook offers more than 340 ways to create your own personal Thanksgiving. Start with light appetizers of Honey-Roasted Almonds and Smoked Salmon Mousse to whet the appetite (and to keep hungry guests out of the kitchen). For the main dish, there's always turkey, or try your hand at a capon, goose, duck, or standing rib roast. Author Holly Garrison gives tips on buying your main course and how to clean, cook, and carve it. Serve with relishes like Gingery Apple Relish or Spicy Cranberry Conserve and sides of Mashed Potatoes and Carrots, Braised Endive and Pears, and Steamed Asparagus and Green Onions. And the dressings: New Orleans Oyster Dressing, Winter Vegetable Stuffing, and Sausage, Mincemeat, and Cornbread Stuffing, to name a few. There's a whole chapter on creating smooth, hearty gravies to go with your meal. Don't forget a bread basket filled with Double Corn Muffins and Seeded Bread Sticks. If you're not groaning now, you will be by the time you get to the Autumn Cherry Pie and the Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce.

The Thanksgiving Cookbook "devoted to all the familiar and comforting foods of Thanksgiving" makes you hungry and nostalgic. And it almost--almost--makes you wish that you were having 25 to dinner so you could try more of the mouthwatering recipes. --Dana Van Nest

From Library Journal

This engaging book by the author of Comfort Food ( LJ 10/15/88) is far more ambitious and encompassing than its title might suggest. There are almost 350 recipes for all courses of the meal, with separate chapters on relishes, stuffings, gravy, and leftovers. While Garrison includes enough recipes for the standards to satisfy even the most rigid traditionalist, she also offers many delicious variations and even departures from the classic menu. Nor should these dishes be limited to Thanksgiving--many of them will have year-round appeal. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent reference for holiday cooking.
It includes many traditional Thanksgiving favorites; such as,
roasted chestnuts, dried cherry and tomato preparations.
The author explains how to decorate food. An example is the
citrus twist. Holiday wines are described; such as,
Chardonnay and others. Exotic Hors D'Oeuvres are described
in detail; such as , cheese biscuit, the raw veggie dip and
others. Famous soup preparations are fully described; such as,
Vichyssoise oyster, pumpkin soup and mushroom consomme.
The dessert menu is " to die for" in its variety.
This book would be very helpful in planning any holiday meal.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Allison on September 9, 2002
Format: Paperback
I've got several Williams-Sonoma Thanksgiving cookbooks, and always refer to my November back issues of Bon Appetit and Gourmet as well each year. After reading the 1st few chapters of this book, I already know where my ideas are coming from this year. This book is terrific - filled with many recipes the likes of which you won't find elsewhere. The author also gives great food and table decorating tips, as well as what not to do on Thanksgiving. She also has many recipes which can be made ahead of time. One on my list for this year is the Sweet Potato Balls - especially good for kids. Mashed sweet potatoes wrapped around a marshmallow, then rolled in crushed corn flakes and baked. If you are like me, and love planning and cooking for Thanksgiving, get a copy of this book. You won't be disappointed.
