It’s turkey time! The birds are being brined, the pâte brisée is being rolled out atop pie plates across the country–waiting to be filled with nutmeg and cinnamon spiced pumpkin, and the gravy boats are getting a fresh polish. I’m partial to a homemade giblet gravy that requires roasting bones, simmering stock and chopping liver, but if you’re grossed out by gizzards or just need a last minute recipe that’s a little snappier for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving table, I’ve got an idea! Last September I was lucky enough to work with McCormick spice company to shoot a web campaign for the nearly-here holiday season, and our first video was released just in time for turkey. Press play on the video screen above to watch me make McCormick’s “easy as pie” turkey gravy, and sneak a peek into the gourmet digs we were able to shoot in at Tasting Table’s enviable Test Kitchen in New York City. Happy Thanksgiving Food Mavens. Enjoy the holiday harvest and Eat it Up!
