Happy Thanksgiving!

A happiest of days to all of our A Michelin and A Mom readers. As you know, the Canadians (me) have already celebrated Thanksgiving way back in October. This year I brined my turkey (my brother insisted) and created a port, butter and shallot glaze that turned the turkey a delicious colour (a deep bordeaux). I kept the sides simple and traditional as I was cooking in my rustic kitchen at our cabin. Our guests and neighbors ate heartily and barely had room for the Caramel Apple Pie.

What does a Michelin Star Chef crave on Thanksgiving? A turkey cooked to perfection by his lovely wife (my sister-in-law!). This year, in Southern California, they are hosting her family for tonight’s big dinner after Jason caters a private dinner in the city. Wouldn’t you love a proper chef to come in and make the dinner for you?

Stay tuned next week when Chef Jason delivers a full report of the past two weeks working with two charities in L.A. He has been cooking for the stars and in the process helping kids get access to healthy foods and access to arts programs – my daughter really wanted to fly herself to L.A. to help her Uncle Jay!

We have much to be thankful for!
