FOOD & DINING’S ANNUAL THANKSGIVING SPECIAL SECTION
Just in time to help you with last-minute planning, Food & Dining’s annual Thanksgiving special section appears in the paper Sunday. We’ve got recipes for side dishes to bolster your menu — sweet potatoes accented with coconut milk and chives, long beans with toasted macadamia nuts, cornbread dressing with a big serving of black culinary history and ideas on what to do with the glorious leftovers (including killer mashed potatoes soup!). And we’ve essays (with recipes!) about being grateful this holiday season, including one on how gingerbread people cookies can help us feel closer to loved ones far away and an ode to the “Joy of Cooking” that teaches us to conjure a meal from a daydream. On Wednesday, Nov. 27, Food & Dining will be off. Look for us again Dec. 4, when we publish the winning recipes from our annual Holiday Cookie Contest. And, of course, there's much more Thanksgiving coverage online at chicagotribune.com/dining.
