Thanksgiving Plans?

Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday and every year is a little different. This year we will be frying our turkey in the driveway. Don't laugh, it sounds ridiculous but in fact this method cooks the turkey in 45 minutes (45 minutes!!!), freeing up oven space for all of our other favorites.

Thanksgiving is about family, friends, food and giving thanks for everything we have wherever you decide to have it. So if you not celebrating at home this year, Where to Eat suggests the restaurants HERE. If you are and just in need of a little help at home, check out The Langham Hotel, Chiara, Fireplace, L'Espalier and Sel de la Terre ... where they are offering Thanksgiving dinner to go! (just make sure you check to see when orders are due by) AND, don’t forgot our favorite little Belmont gem, Savinos, where Tom's menu is sure to delight!

Well that’s it for now. Hope everyone has a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving. Bon Appetit!

A Turkey for every Table

Thanksgiving dinner is the singular meal that binds Americans. For many families, the Thanksgiving meal symbolizes a time of appreciation and hope. Lets make sure that every family can have a turkey on their table by making a small donation. For every $13 donated, The Greater Boston Food Bank can distribute a 12-14lbs turkey to a family in need.
