Well, folks, the frost has covered our windshields, the jack-o-lanterns are in the compost, and the great testing of recipes for Thanksgiving is underway. (This year I think I’m going to try adding some oyster mushrooms to my stuffing. And is it too decadent or heart attack inducing if I try to wrap the turkey in bacon? Thoughts?) Anyway, while we’ll be in the kitchen creating our dishes, the folks at NPR have done some testing of their own and this month we’ll sample their latest menu, as it were. Let me explain.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Some argue it’s the biggest food holiday of the year here in the U.S. We have a panel of Berkshire chefs in the studio with us today, here to talk about cooking and dining for the holidays, and to answer your questions.
It's the day before Thanksgiving... are you ready for the holiday? The New York Farm Bureau is out with its 2013 Market Basket Survey - shoppers across 11 districts of the state went to the store with shopping lits of 12 traditional holiday food items, ranging FROM turkey to celery to whipping cream. The average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $49.04, a 44-cent price decrease from last year’s national average of $49.48.
