with food, there’s always something new

Getting ready for turkey day

Our national sport of over-indulging from late November until Superbowl Sunday is about to begin. Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away.

Don’t Want to Cook?

You’re over extended, you’ve stretched multi-tasking beyond its limits. Or, you’re too bored or too lazy to cook-and you’re still financially solvent-then head out to a restaurant.

Ted’s Montana Grill is waiting for you. They’re serving a traditional turkey meal ($13.99 per person), along with steaks, burgers and bison. As they say, “There’ll be something for everyone at Ted’s this Thanksgiving.”

Cooking Lessons

Feeling overwhelmed with all the Thanksgiving recipes? The internet’s supposed to make life faster and easier, but the sheer volume of crapola can make a cook’s life complicated.

Who knew cranberry sauce could be so involved? How many bunches of fresh herbs does it take to brine a turkey?

Well, thank your lucky stars you live in Indianapolis. Now you can meet real people, doing real cooking. Adobe Grill is offering cooking lessons, just in time for the holiday season.

Have some fun learning how to prepare a special Adobo Grill Thanksgiving menu during the restaurant’s cooking class at Adobo Grill, 110 East Washington St., at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, November 20.

Attendees will learn how to make Adobo marinated turkey, with classic mole poblano, chorizo-corn bread stuffing, chipotle sweet potato mash and fresh corn esquites.

Additionally, Adobo Grill will give out recipes and a shopping list so attendees can cook up their own Adobo-style Thanksgiving dishes at home.

Walk away from the computer, ditch the recipes and Saveur magazine and have fun at Adobo. Besides, you’ll end up knowing how to make turkey mole. The cost of the class? $24.99 per person.

Last Day

Tomorrow (Saturday, November 15) is the last day to order Gunthorp Farms Heritage Turkeys from Goose the Market. Make me proud, Hoosiers, and support an independent, Indiana farm family.

While you’re ordering your bird, check Chris Eley’s turkey brining video. Do we have a star in our midst?

Live on the east/south side of Indy and want to buy your bird closer to home?  Kevin and Anthony at Edibles are offering Gunthrop Farms turkey. Also, they’ll have a stash of Pumpkin Gelato for sale.
