TIP Celery root, or celeriac, is an under-rated autumn vegetable. Martha likes it puréed in a soup, julienned and served as a salad with remoulade sauce, or roasted alongside her Thanksgiving turkey. HOW-TO Making Seed-and-Suet Bird Feeders 1. Melt 2 pounds of raw suet (an energy source for birds, available from the butcher) in a saucepan over medium heat until liquefied. Strain through a cheesecloth; let cool. Heat and strain again. 2. Mix suet with 5 pounds mixed wild birdseed, 1 pound dried cranberries, and 1 pound raw shelled peanuts. Pack into five 1-quart plastic containers, with a loop of twine in the middle of each. 3. Freeze until firm, 2 hours; unmold and hang.

editor’s letter

1. I have a few pieces of basalt Wedgwood. As traditional as the design of this plate is, it goes well with more modern pieces, like these ceramic servers for salt and pepper. 2 You can never have too many serving pieces, and I collect monogrammed ones. I even buy some with initials other than E and P—they make lovely, very personal gifts. 3. On page 130, Fritz and Rebecca suggest asking friends to keep an eye out for the things you collect. Indeed, Fritz found this set of Wedgwood Celadon plates for me. I have enough to host my entire extended family for Thanksgiving—now I just need a bigger apartment! 4. I’ve noticed that creamers are easier to come by than some tableware, and they’re so versatile. I use…

top turkey sandwiches

Teach and Inspire COBB-SALAD SANDWICH I have some friends who put the turkey carcass into a big stockpot immediately after Thanksgiving dinner to make some sort of soup. That’s not my kind of thing, unless of course someone sends me an irresistible recipe for Thanksgiving soup! (I will, however, make a stock with the bones.) And I have some other friends who hate leftovers, saying enough is enough. For me, though, the leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. I love digging the savory stuffing out of the cavity to enjoy later, and picking at the cold turkey from the fridge. And I want a generous amount of well-roasted turkey for delectable sandwiches on the Friday, Saturday, and even Sunday after Thanksgiving. In fact, I so love leftover turkey that I roast…

good things

BANNER DAY A plentiful spread is one of the most anticipated parts of the Thanksgiving holiday. Showcase the menu—or simply a list of what you’re thankful for—on a roll of brown kraft paper. Write the name of each dish with a thick marker, then thread a length of sturdy twine through the paper tube. Hang on a small nail or picture hook over a buffet table or in another prominent spot. Lean on Me Shaker peg rails are already staples in many mudrooms and entryways for holding coats and bags, but these sturdy racks can also host a rotating display of art. Create a gallery by resting a few framed photos or artworks of varying sizes on top of the pegs, leaning them against the wall. Don’t be afraid to layer one frame…

Different Strokes Compliment a woman on her hair and she’s apt to rave about a particular product, or wax poetic about her favorite salon. But her brush? Not so much. Yet as any stylist will tell you, everything from the bristles to the shape and construction of the brush factors into the look and overall health of your hair. New York City celebrity hairstylist Gregory Patterson takes us through the mane points. DETANGLER For Wet Hair Soft, flexible plastic bristles blaze through snarled strands, eliminating breakage and painful yelps. Harry Josh Pro Tools detangling brush, $20, hairenvy.com. TEASING For Building Body Back-comb your way to a bombshell ’do. The pointed handle allows for easy sectioning, and the densely packed boar bristles tame even the shortest strands.
