The New Thanksgiving Table Redux

We ran a review of Diane Morgan’s very good The New Thanksgiving Table (Chronicle Books) early in October. Now, with Thanksgiving bearing down on us, it seems like a good time to point this book out once more. After all, it’s not every day you encounter a book with eight (count ’em) recipes to cook a turkey.

From Monica Stark’s review:
As impressive as a book with eight (eight!) turkey recipes might sound, to my mind, the most significant recipes in The New Thanksgiving Table would seem to me to have very little to do with Thanksgiving at all. Crostini with Fig and Calamata Olive Tapenade. Tex-Mex Honey Pecans. Sizzlin’ Corn and Jalapeño Bread with Bacon. Oyster Stew. Roasted Chestnut Soup. Forget Thanksgiving. In some ways, Morgan’s new book is autumn delivered straight to the table. Which is not a bad place to be come Thanksgiving.

The New Thanksgiving Table is another winner for Morgan.
The review is here.
