The Thanksgiving Table
Recipes and Ideas to Create Your Own Holiday Tradition

by Diane Morgan

The Thanksgiving Table For kitchen novices and amateur chefs, the Thanksgiving "feast" is no easy task. It requires tremendous planning and preparation. And, by the time the final dish is washed, hosts are most thankful for the fact they can finally put their feet up

In The Thanksgiving Table, Diane Morgan ushers hosts and hostesses through the entire holiday. Offering everything from menu suggestions and do-ahead tips (which make planning in advance a breeze) to variations on traditional recipes (including a section devoted to vegetarians), Morgan provides a cornucopia of advice to ensure an unforgettable celebration.

Recipes for classics like Cranberry Relish, as well as more innovative dishes such as Lasagna with Sugar Pumpkin, Ricotta and Fried Sage Leaves, Mushroom and Sage Stuffing, and Chestnut, Leek and Fresh Herb Bread Pudding, bring new flavors to traditional favorites. The Thanksgiving Table also includes instructions and suggestions for simple, elegant table settings and the fool-proof secret to moist turkey, as well as plenty of food and technique photographs.

The Thanksgiving Table is truly a book for which every home cook can give thanks.
