So how are you doing the turkey? Or are you doing it?

I’m doing mine in brine, following this recipe but making it a lot more complicated. And there will also be my trademark blini-caviar-smoked salmon cake.

I’m forced to buy these small turkeys that only weigh 14 lbs for the moment but I dream of getting to cook a huge, enormous bird one day.

    It simply isn’t fair not to post the salmon cake recipe!


  2. That’s what Middle East problems do to people… My first reaction, upon just seeing the title, was – what happened in Turkey now???


  3. My thanksgiving already happened. But the US Thanksgiving is right around the time a US AC radio station (that everyone where I live can easily receive) just across the border starts playing Christmas music.


  4. Brine, with a cranberry/grapefruit sauce.

    Brine, thanks to you I learned a new word in English.


  5. Roasted, and basted with port wine. Port in the stuffing too. Makes a really flavorful bird, and the gravy is to die for.
