HAVING FRIENDS AND FAMILY AT home for the annual feast is one of the warmest times of the year. What could be better than catching up with your favorite people over comfort food? But, accommodating out-of-towners for the long haul comes with its own set of challenges besides getting ready for the main event—like those breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks to serve guests along the way. You’ll have to stock up for additional meals, and also make sure you have the right tools and appliances at the ready to help you prep for perfection.

the turkey will be televised

WHEN YOU WORK AT A FOOD MAGAZINE, Thanksgiving is your Groundhog Day. Same holiday every year. Gotta have turkey on the cover, and there better be mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing and cranberry sauce and some sort of side that feels new but not, you know, too new. That last part, I guess you could say, is the mission for each November issue: Reinvent something that no one really wants reinvented. At BA we start percolating ideas in July, ensuring we have enough time to develop recipes, stage photo shoots, and get the whole thing to the printer and to your mailbox in time for you to start percolating. But this year, before we could sit down at some oversize conference table to debate russets versus Yukon Golds (hint, it’s neither; see…

home – family meal

The Other 29 Days In anticipation of stuffing, mashed potatoes, and “just a sliver” of every pie on the table come Thanksgiving Day, we like to keep dinner laid-back for the rest of the month with a few smart strategies: Embrace seasonal produce (this soup is our current favorite way to eat sweet potatoes). Skip the meat every so often (you won’t miss it in the larb on p. 20). And when in doubt, make a double batch of the jolting citrus-chile sauce on p.22 for a welcome respite from butter and gravy. Feel-Better Chicken and Rice Soup Bring 12 oz. skinless, boneless chicken thighs, 4 thinly sliced garlic cloves, one 2" piece ginger, peeled, thinly sliced, ? cup jasmine rice, rinsed, and 5 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan.…

a condensed guide to roasting, pickling, and cooking with: shallots

The 101 BUYING Shallots should feel heavy for their size and firm with dry, papery skins. Avoid any that are sprouted or have soft spots. STORING Kept in a cool, dark, and dry place (a.k.a. not in the fridge, where moisture lives), shallots will stay good for weeks. What’s the difference between a shallot and, like, a yellow onion? Shallots have a delicate and sweet flavor with a hint of sharpness, while onions bring a more intense heat. You can substitute shallots in nearly any recipe that calls for onions—just make sure you’re using the same volume. (For example, several medium shallots equals about one small yellow onion.) Why We Love: Fried Shallots Fried shallots are enjoyed across Southeast Asia as an all-purpose topper. We love Maesri brand, which is easy to find online; buy in bulk because…

Kick Things Off With a Cocktail LAIRD’S APPLEJACK is the kind of holdover you just don’t see anymore. But that’s only because people forget. The inimitable apple brandy is something I reach for when fall rolls around. Here we’re going to make some sours for an all-time best Thanksgiving pregame. They’ve got the apple, citrus, maple, and baking spice notes of the season with enough refreshment and punch to chill any remarks from combative relatives. Applejack Sour Combine 2 oz. applejack (preferably Laird’s), ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice, ½ oz. fresh orange juice, ½ oz. pure maple syrup, and 2 dashes of Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until outside of shaker is frosty, about 20 seconds. Strain into a glass; sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg. Makes 1…
