chef_kroner_2013A few tips for the cooks in the family as we are about a week away from Thanksgiving:

1. Eat Local! Get your turkey from a local farm. Shop the Rhinebeck Thanksgiving Farmer’s Market this Sunday.
2. Brine your bird. It takes 18-30 hours, so plan ahead, but it gives you a moist, flavorful turkey every time. Try my simple recipe.
3. Get everyone involved. Have guests bring a dish. Let the kids help in the kitchen. They can learn how to make some tasty stuffing this Saturday at our Taste and Talk. Basically, make sure you have a chance to socialize and enjoy the dinner too.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’ll be able to join us over the holidays this year.
