  • Food in the United States: Thanksgiving

    There is perhaps no better show of food particular to the United States than Thanksgiving. On November 24 we celebrated the holiday, and I took some photos of the food. It’s a meal most Americans take seriously… I started preparing the turkey at about 11 pm the night before Thanksgiving by covering it in a mix of salt and herbs known as a brine.

    I probably spent another 5 hours on Thanksgiving day preparing the turkey and the other dishes that go with the meal, including mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie (Teauna actually made that) and gravy. We didn’t do cranberry sauce, which is usually almost required, but we had enough food as it was.
