Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up

If you're still stumped on any of your Thanksgiving dishes, here is a round up of some of our favorite new menu inspiration, as well as some standby recipes.

 This is ambitious, but if you're cooking for a smaller group, this turketta is a great alternative to roasting a whole bird.

If you are roasting a turkey, the latest trick is to brine the bird and then cover it in a butter soaked cheesecloth before you put it in the oven.  This method saves you basting time and delivers moist, flavorful meat.

This stuffing recipe is fairly traditional, but has the added twist of jalapeno to give it some heat.

For dessert, we can't wait to try this Bourbon Ginger Pecan Pie.  Plus, we are making our Apple Pie with Crumble Topping to serve alongside.

For some general tips and tricks, check out this advice from some of LA's top chefs.

There's plenty more to cook in our guides from 2013 and 2014.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

What We Are Talking About This Week

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop is doing an amazing collaboration with Valentino.  If you're in the market for some fabulous, high end, star studded holiday looks, this is the line for you.

 The wonderful and hilarious essayist David Sedaris is currently on tour, and he's stopping at Northridge this Saturday.  Amazingly, there are still a few tickets left, so we just have one word for you: Go!  If you can't, console yourself with some of Sedaris' best stories on NPR.

While most places wait to unveil their holiday decorations until after Thanksgiving, Christmas comes a little early to Pier 39, where their tree will be unveiled this Saturday evening.

There is an amazing culinary event happening tonight in Los Angeles in honor of the release of SF/NYC Chef Danny Bowien's Mission Chinese cookbook.  Featuring a banquet cooked by Bowien, as well as chef's from LA's Night + Market and Sqirl, SF's Tartine, and LA, NYC & Portland's Pok Pok, this is set to be a delicious time.

It's no secret that San Francisco is winning the NorCal vs. SoCal airport food battle, and Eater has outlined some of the best places to eat next time you're waiting for a flight at SFO.
