THANKSGIVING


 
Thurs, Nov 5th 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Chef Jamie Bordoshuk
 
The calendar reads November but don't put that grill away just yet. Nothing says Thanksgiving like turkey on the grill. For most, they tend to stuff it, roast it and forget it. But cooking turkey outdoors breaths extra life into your Thanksgiving bird, plus it frees up the oven! A sure cure for bland and dry turkey, grilling a turkey yields a tender and juicy bird every time. Join Chef Jamie and turn this Thanksgiving bird into a grilled sensation! 

 
Tues, Nov 10th 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Chef Jamie Bordoshuk

Whether it's your first or your thirty-first Thanksgiving, it's time to master the basics. Discover the easiest and best way to carve the bird. Mash your way to the smoothest, most buttery spuds ever, and craft the silkiest gravy the boat has ever held. Bring the entire plate together; this is what you need to know.
