my kitchen: happy turkey day!



A snapshot of last year's Thanksgiving in Taipei where I took the time to make all the sides that I loved to go with the smoked turkey that a relative ordered- corn, garlic mashed potatoes, stuffing, sauteed mushrooms and candied yams'. This year, I'm trying Thanksgiving dinner with a group of friends at a place I'm hoping doesn't disappoint... If it doesn't hit the spot, I'm going to be busy trying out my friend's sweet potato casserole recipe and baking some cornbread Friday.



Figuring out last minute options for turkey dinner in Taipei this year? Check out what the Taipei Times suggests with its handy list, or you can call up some of the restaurants I've listed in the past posts...

What places have you guys tried for Thanksgiving dinner out or where do you get stuff for making it at home (canned pumpkin? cornbread mix? recipes for your favorite thanksgiving side?) or is it too much work (and expensive) trying to celebrate such an American holiday in Taipei?

I tried the thanksgiving dinner at Capones. The soup, salad, and desert were just ok, but their turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and yams were very tasty and kind of authentic. They did drown their turkey with mushroom gravy tho...Where did you try?

Ooh cornbread! Do you have a cornbread recipe you can share? ^_^

brian: mm cornbread.

sparklewolfie: i've never seen cornmeal in taipei.. i usually bring back cornbread mix from the states.

johnny: ooh, it's good to know that the capones turkey and yams were good. i got turkey to go from lawry's this year.. the turkey was good, but the stuffing was gross, but the mashed potatoes and gravy were decent. i love their creamed corn and spinach but that had to be ordered apart from the basket

f: i usually make it from a mix! sorry no recipe to share! :(
