Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l'Action de grâce in Canadian French) is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

Part of my immediate uneasiness with tradition stems from the fact that I used to b ...

  • Post-Thanksgiving Pairing Analysis

    … Many of you out there probably think the big Thanksgiving Day match was the Philadelphia Eagles versus the Dallas Cowboys. For me, though, the real faceoff was at my dinner table as we tried pairings from two different wineries with roast turkey and a variety of sides. How did it all turn out? Well, I can tell you that both wines performed…

  • Thirsty Thursday Thanksgiving Fix: Blandy’s Madeira Rainwater

    … This Thirsty Thursday, Thanksgiving has hit the US. Arguments rage over how to cook, what to watch, and whether aunt Mary’s special friend more than just a friend. So we need something to render ourselves more amiable. Nothing could be more American than Madeira. Sure, these Atlantic islands are Portuguese. Yet colonial America imported over…

    … 2012 Robert Biale Vineyards Black Chicken Zinfandel Today I’m thankful for CHEEZ, stylish cowboy hats, turkey, and good wine!

  • Pedro’s Palo Cortado Sherry Almacenista Selection

    … I like sherry. There, I’ve said it. Call me middle aged if you like, but I don’t care, sherry, like a nice bow tie, is cool. Palo Cortado takes sherry to a whole new level of lovely. Theoretically it’s only made by accident, when the layer of flor on a fino sherry dies off unexpectedly, exposing the wine to the air, which oxidises it and sends…

    … Happy Thanksgiving! Last year, on this site, I mentioned that my boys and I had started a bit of a tradition–for the last two years we would head down to the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade and watch it to the end.
