In something that Chef Kim Holmes and I do every year before Thanksgiving — we talk about how to sequence cooking and meal preparation so that the CHEF CAN PARTY TOO on Thanksgiving Day.  We’ll talk about:

  • Turkey thawing, brining & cooking Timeline
  • Pre-Thanksgiving dish preparation… so that Thanksgiving Day is easier
  • Wondra or Flour in gravy?
  • Using Crock Pots to ease the congestion in the kitchen
  • Having store bought gourmet “Back Up Gravy” on hand — just in case!
