Robb Forman Dew first began collecting her Thanksgiving recipes at the request of a cousin who hadn't cooked before. In A Southern Thanksgiving, she gathers them into a cookbook--both practical and literary--for an easy-to-prepare, sumptuous Southern feast. In recreating the ambiance of her remembered Thanksgivings in the South, she found that planning ahead is crucial. A Southern Thanksgiving includes recipes for such delicious dishes as Yams Mousseline, Roast Turkey with Gravy and Cornbread Dressing, and Lalie's Pumpkin Chiffon Pie with Gingersnap Crust--many of which can be made weeks ahead and frozen. Dew offers such an effortless strategy for preparing the Thanksgiving meal that both you and your guests will have the time to enjoy the day together. Hers is a book to be treasured, savored, and used by first-time cooks and experienced hosts alike.
