Turkey Day is just around the corner, and while not everyone celebrates this holiday, I am sure there are quite a handful of you who cannot wait for Thanksgiving. I totally get you – who can resist a nice turkey dinner with melt-in-your-mouth mashed potatoes?
If you are tasked with preparing the food for this year’s Thanksgiving get-together, I think that you’ll enjoy some pointers from the Mr. Cooking for Geeks himself, Jeff Porter. (See my post on his book, Cooking for Geeks.)
Do you want to know how to cook the perfect turkey AND know the scientific reason behind it? Watch this video and you’ll find out how to do just that, with a little chemistry thrown in. The CNET interviewer actually asks Jeff Porter to go all out with respect to geekiness, so you’ll get more than your fair share here.
Oh, and just in case you missed it, there’s a Thanksgiving iPhone App at CNET’s sister site, Chow.com. This will certainly come in handy if you are not exactly a whiz in the kitchen and somehow has to figure things out for a Thanksgiving dinner of some sort.
So there you have it – a perfect mixture of geekery and cooking. Don’t fret too much about the food and preparations. After all, Thanksgiving is for sharing meaningful times with those close to your geeky heart. :)
