Whether you're getting together for a big family gathering, or keeping it small and simple, there are foods that make everyone's mouths and memories water around late November. Because we don't want to interrupt your signature turkey recipe, we'll just talk about side dishes. Classic whole berry cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy in all their magnificent variations, and a homemade apple pie. Bring your own cooking tips to share, and follow along as I provide pictures for some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes.
Eden Cooks is a cooking club for any interested members of the Eden community. We will meet on the forum to discuss everything from tips and pointers for less well-equipped kitchens, explanations of cooking terms, and important techniques. There will be a featured recipe each meeting, with pictures taken as I prepare it for you. I will cover some ingredient substitutions to make each recipe more friendly to people with dietary restrictions.
During a typical meeting, a $25 gift card will be awarded for the winner of a contest where you guess the lesser known kitchen implement from a series of photos that I take. Another will be given to the winner of a trivia contest from information that I will provide during the meeting. During this extra-special two-hour Thanksgiving extravaganza, there will be lots of holiday trivia provided courtesy of the Holiday Party committee---and that means even more prizes, as well!
Our Party/Meeting is going to be held right here on Monday the 21st at 8pm EST---it's going to be a blast, with revelry til 10pm EST---so I hope you'll come hungry with your party hats on! And if you're chomping at the bit and just have to think about cooking before the party, be sure to check out the October/November Iron Chefs challenge or the 'Make it at Home' blog symposium!
