Dear Companion readers,
We like to think of November as the month of food! As the days grow shorter, we gather for community suppers, feasts of thanksgiving, and general elections. This is a time when the best of cooks can shine and the best of eaters will surely get their fill.
To help you start thinking about holiday preparations, consult our collection of Thanksgiving recipes—from the big bird to stuffing to deserving side dishes to desserts! And don't forget our recipe for a yummy Election Cay Cake, popular in Colonial times. If you're a cook, baking will be a pleasant diversion and this cake is sure to please all parties!
