Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This primer on Thanksgiving cooking and traditions brims with fresh ideas for both food preparation and table decoration. Morgan (Cooking for the Week) is the anti-Martha Stewart none of these recipes is fussy for the sake of fussiness. They are instead guides to creating updated classics such as Gratin of Fennel and Tomato, and Acorn Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice, Cranberries, Walnuts and Hickory-Baked Tofu. In deference to the holiday, instructions for advance preparations and shortcuts are provided: for Lasagna with Sugar Pumpkin, Ricotta, and Fried Sage Leaves, for example, Morgan explains how to substitute fresh pasta or no-boil lasagna noodles. A chapter on turkey provides instructions for buying and handling the bird, as well as recipes for Barbecued Turkey and a simple Roast Turkey Breast for a Small Gathering. There are even a few vegetarian entr?es, including Spaghetti Squash with Zucchini, Garlic, and Tomato Sauce. The dishes here are new, but never so adventurous that they would be inappropriate for a traditional holiday celebration. Stuffing ideas include Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Sage Stuffing, and Chestnut, Leek, and Fresh Herb Bread Pudding. Desserts play on classic Thanksgiving flavors: Chocolate Gingerbread with Sugar-Glazed Apples, and Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crumb Crust. A chapter on using leftover turkey offers Turkey Potpie with a Biscuit Crust, and Turkey Enchiladas. Menus for variously sized parties and clever ideas like miniature pumpkins cut to encase votive candles round out this spot-on effort. (Nov.) Forecast: This is an incredibly useful little book. At this modest price, it should sell briskly and prove a solid seasonal backlist item aswell. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Cooking teacher and author Morgan presents dozens of recipes for both classic Thanksgiving dishes and more contemporary alternatives, such as Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese and Bittersweet Chocolate Parfait with Cranberry-Cherry Coulis. There's a chapter of vegetarian entries for nonturkey eaters, as well as a handful of crafts and decorating ideas. Rick Rodgers's popular Thanksgiving 101 (LJ 10/1/98) covers much of the same ground, but since Thanksgiving is the one holiday that sends even noncooks into the kitchen, larger collections may want to add both.

From the Publisher
Cookbooks dedicated to the Thanksgiving meal would fit in the top drawer of a nightstand. Inspiring ones, well, no space required.
Portlander Diane Morgan's "The Thanksgiving Table" fills the void, and does it nicely with its friendly narration and lovingly realistic food photos by fellow Portlander John Rizzo.
Done in quiet autumn tones, "Table" is both mother's shoulder in the kitchen for beginner cooks and oft-needed inspiration for tired VTCs (Veteran Thanksgiving Cooks).
Along with traditional recipes (sausage stuffing), updated classics (Sauteed Green beans with Shallot Crisps) and new twists (Double-Crusted Cranberry-Blueberry Pie), Morgan includes easy instructions for brining, the new classic method for roasting a bird.
Preparation timetables, tips on cooking ahead and ideas on homey table decorations are given their due, as is everybody's favorite subject--stuffing.
You'll be tempted by Italian Sausage, Mushroom and Sage Stuffing, Cheddar and Jalapeno Corn Bread Stuffing, and Bread Stuffing with Apples, Bacon and Caramelized Onions. But be prepared: She gives instructions only for baking them in a pan; you're on your own to figure out what size bird the amounts accommodate.
That aside, "The Thanksgiving Table" is a pleasure to read, easy to use and just the company a cook needs on one of America's favorite holidays. -The Oregonian
