Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Thanksgiving 2007


The Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated the second Monday of October. The timing is a direct reflection of our shorter growing season, hence an earlier harvest. Unlike the American Thanksgiving that focuses on pilgrims, the Canadian Thanksgiving focuses on a successful harvest. The Thanksgiving table is set with the bounties of the harvest such as squash, potatoes, pumpkins and apples. The table virtually becomes a groaning board with the weight of the food.

Happy Thanksgiving!
