Big Dinner, Broke Dinner

Thanksgiving is all about tradition—most importantly, the tradition of preparing a massive, juicy turkey to set as the dinner table's centerpiece. The problem is that no one can cook that Thanksgiving classic just like Mama used to. Local chef and host of radio's Good Food Hour John Ash to the rescue! Ash's new book, 'Culinary Birds: The Ultimate Poultry Cookbook,' is set to change the way you cook that big bird on Turkey Day. Ash (pictured) appears—with edible samples!—discussing the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at Copperfield's Books. 775 Village Court, Santa Rosa. 7pm. 707.823.8991.

So you're not cooking the turkey, and with your food budget, you're looking at a big dinner of something like . . . macaroni and cheese? 'Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese' is a cookbook that reinvents the American classic into a meal so unique and flavorful that you'd be proud to set in on your table on Thanksgiving—or for any of those darned dinner parties. Illustrated with gorgeous color photography, Melt introduces inventive recipes that add fresh ingredients, handcrafted cheeses and unique flavors to this seemingly basic dish. Meet the geniuses in the kitchen, Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord—with edible samples!—on Saturday, Nov. 23, at Copperfield's Books. 775 Village Court, Santa Rosa. 1pm. 707.823.8991.
