Thanksgiving at My Farm 2018

Thanksgiving is among my favorite occasions, especially when I can spend it with my family and friends.

Every year, my holiday begins weeks before with careful preparation. This Thanksgiving, several tables were set for the more than 40 adults and children that joined me at my Bedford, New York farm. We cooked three large turkeys, which came from Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, New York. The turkeys were prepared three different ways: in parchment, in cheesecloth, and spatchcocked. I served vegetarian stuffings in squashes from my garden. And of course, we had traditional sides including mashed potatoes, and corn bread and cranberry sauce made in my fanciful turkey molds. For dessert, I was proud to share a variety of beautifully decorated homemade pies and cookies.

In all, it was a most enjoyable holiday gathering - enjoy these photos.
