Thanksgiving Dinner In August

Posted: August 13, 2006
by: T.Alexander

Who said it’s never to early to start the planning process? What culture on earth is more organized, punctual and attentive to detail than the British? Well, Robert Jackson at Gourmet-Food-Revolution is sharing a bit of that with you right now.

Gourmet-Food-Revolution is exactly what it says…a resource to help you learn how to participate in the ever-changing food world - all the way from gourmet food merchants to personal chefs. Some meals are better made at home by the family however – such as Thanksgiving Dinner. Robert is going to help you achieve the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner, detail by detail.

I especially like Robert’s planning process segmented into tasks that should be done 3 days, 2 days, 1 day before your event. This makes the process so much less stressful than starting the dinner the day before. For example, if using a frozen turkey, take it out to thaw 3 days ahead. Stuffing can be prepared 2 days ahead, but gravy only 1 day ahead. And of course delicate items like pumpkin pie chantilly must be made the morning of.

I must be honest – I do not think I can wait until November to try these wonderful recipes, especially the pumpkin pie chantilly. Who said we cannot show a little thankfulness in August?  Thanks Robert – can’t wait for Christmas dinner. We’ll practice on that on in September!
