Description: Thanksgiving is this country's quintessential feast, dear to us all, a time on the cusp of seasons that Americans celebrate with football, parades, and, most of all, by eating -- thus giving thanks for the harvest and shoring up for the winter to come. Across the country, family and friends assemble to enjoy each other and the great meal set before them. 

For the cook, this might be the one time in the year for large-scale entertaining. Thanksgiving Dinner, by Anthony Dias Blue and Kathryn Blue, covers the entire meal from soup to suggestions for leftovers. The Blues developed these recipes by cooking for their own family and friends and borrowing some from their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and uncles as well as from their favorite restaurants. They all reflect the special care that cooks bestow on the Thanksgiving feast. 

Every course of the meal has an entire chapter devoted to it; the reader will learn how to shop for the best turkey, the pros and cons of trussing the bird, and how to carve it once it's cooked. And for those tired of turkey, there are also recipes for Cornish game hen, duck, and goose. Stuffing lovers will rejoice in the chapter devoted to stuffing (containing twenty recipes). In addition there are chapters on appetizers (that leave room for the rest of the meal), seasonal soups, gravies, condiments, vegetables, desserts, breads and muffins, and leftovers. 

More than just a collection of recipes, the Blues' book directs the reader in planning every aspect of the meal, from a coherent and delicious menu to the best wine to go with it (drawing on Anthony Dias Blue's comprehensive oenological expertise). Thanksgiving Dinner combines favorite dishes and innovative twists on the traditional, providing inspiration to the holiday cook and the basis for a perfect Thanksgiving meal.
