There are few culinary tasks tougher than getting Thanksgiving dinner on the table. It’s a trick that necessitates a lot of work, some good timing, and some cooking skill.

With that balancing act going on, and a living room full of hungry people just waiting to eat, it can be tempting to cut a few corners here and there. Some corners, like canned cranberry sauce instead of homemade, can be forgiven. Others, like not properly defrosting the turkey (if you’re turkey is still frozen at this point, you might want to get a fresh one) or not handling leftovers properly, are a recipe for holiday disaster.

Our office has put together a few tips that all Thanksgiving chefs (and their helpers) should have in mind this week. Information on how to best thaw out and cook Old Tom Turkey, and how to put him and his delicious sides away for later, are all part of our latest Consumer Advisory.
