Online Turkey Day Support
In kitchenland, it’s a nail biter of a week if there ever was one, with just a handful of days ‘til Thanksgiving, the feast of all feasts. If you’re in the stress kitty zone, I recommend finding a way out, but as a card-carrying member of Kitchen Stress Kitties Anonymous, I know it’s easier said than done.
Instead, I offer you a few online-only tools that have grabbed my attention this week.
On Tuesday at 1ET, Consumer Reports is hosting a live chat, with food safety expert Urvashi Ranvan leading the conversation. In addition to food prep and handling, Ranvan will field questions and comments on the complex world of food labels. Go here to participate.
On Wednesday, cooking site Allrecipes will host its first annual Web cast, with a live streaming cook-a-thon, from its kitchen in Seattle. It’s an all-day affair (11 a.m. –7 p.m. ET) with baking demos, entertaining tips and live q&a with the staff. Go here for the 11th hour hoopla.
And as they’ve done for years, the Meat and Poultry Hotline helpers will be manning the phones on Thanksgiving Day (8 a.m.- 2 p.m. ET), in both English and Spanish. The magic number: 888-674-6854.
Stay cool, ya hear?
