taking sides

When my kids come to the table for Thanksgiving dinner in a few weeks, they will likely put three things on their plates: a Parker House roll, cranberry sauce and…never mind, that’s it. I was going to say mashed potatoes, but they don’t really like those enough to bother taking any. They will probably take a second and a third roll, and then they’ll ask to be excused until the pie shows up. If I were a better parent, I’d make them eat turkey and green beans, but I want them to love Thanksgiving as much as I do, so I usually let them have whatever weird version of the meal makes them happy. What my girls don’t know is that on tables across America, kids their age (and adults) will…

in the know

The Mother of All Casseroles Old-school green bean casserole is more popular these days than ever: Google searches for the recipe reached an all-time high last November, and by some estimates, 20 million households will serve the dish this Thanksgiving. We have Dorcas Reilly to thank for it: She was a supervisor in the Campbell’s Soup test kitchen in 1955 when her team created the “Green Bean Bake.” The recipe started appearing on cans of cream of mushroom soup in 1960, and 35 years later, executives told Dorcas it was Campbell’s most-requested recipe ever. Dorcas passed away last year, but her contribution to Thanksgiving lives on. “My mom really liked that the recipe could be altered with different ingredients,” her daughter, Dorcas R. Tarbell, told us. Make the original, or turn…

OH, JOY! A new, ninth edition of Joy of Cooking, arguably the most popular cookbook of all time, will be released this month—88 years after Irma Rombauer self-published the original. Fans haven’t seen an update to the beloved book in more than a decade: The eighth edition was released in 2006. (Fun fact: The seventh edition, from 1997, was edited by Alex Guarnaschelli’s mom, legendary cookbook editor Maria Guarnaschelli.) Irma’s great-grandson John Becker and his wife, Megan Scott, oversaw the latest iteration and added more than 600 new recipes, including regional classics like Nashville hot chicken, St. Louis gooey butter cake and these Ohio buckeyes. The new edition goes on sale November 12. $40; simonandschuster.com BUCKEYES About 45 pieces Combine in a large bowl or a stand mixer: 1 cup smooth peanut butter4 tablespoons (½ stick)…

faking it

faux meat is everywhere these days, but that wasn’t the case in 1995 when a strange product called Tofurky appeared in natural food stores around the Northwest just in time for Thanksgiving. Marketed as a complete holiday feast, the gelatinous tofu “roast” came with a cranberry-breadcrumb stuffing, tempeh “drumettes” and a tub of nutritional yeast gravy. Over the next two decades, Tofurky became a holiday go-to for many vegetarians—and a punchline for everyone else: Seth Meyers once described it on Late Night as “tofu molded into the shape of a turkey and then thrown in the garbage.” Founder Seth Tibbott and his stepson, current CEO Jaime Athos, don’t mind the jokes. They now sell about 400,000 Tofurkys every year! ANATOMY OF A TOFURKY TIME FOR TOFURKY 2009 Jones Soda Co. debuts a limited-edition…
