The Washington PostWith strict guidelines and a respect for traditions, Sifton's book might more aptly be called "The Elements of Thanksgiving." It's the culinary equivalent of Strunk and White's classic writing guide. Like the authors of that volume, Sifton sets down rules that must be followed to guarantee success. Some of those bylaws seem to turn the tastemaker into a taskmaster, but that lends the book a certain charm…Sifton is the prim teacher rapping a ruler in his palm. But for a nervous novice, that strict guidance is most welcome.
