Unanimously anticipated, and unanimously feared, Thanksgiving Day is a time when cooks unite – and “Turkey Confidential” will be there to help. Now in its sixth year, “Turkey Confidential”, from American Public Media’s The Splendid Table®, offers cooks an open line to food expert and host Lynne Rossetto Kasper to answer their calls, questions and occasional cries for help. A tradition in kitchen’s across the nation, Kasper plays “culinary turkey triage nurse” LIVE on Thanksgiving morning from 11am ET – 1pm ET.
Joining the program this year are international chef and food advocate Jamie Oliver, international culinary innovator Jose Andres, wine author Joshua Wesson, and regular Splendid Table restaurant guides Jane and Michael Stern. The guests will assist Lynne in answering listener calls that, if the past is any indication, will range from the hilarious (turkey locked in the oven on self-clean cycle) to the naively hopeful (turkey frozen solid). With a little luck, and some good advice, Lynne and guests will strive to lead all to a delicious meal and a happy ending.
Listeners can call 1.800.537.5252 for intervention assistance with their impending disasters, or join the fun online at www.splendidtable.org for advice, success stories and menu recipes. People can also browse or show the nation their own Thanksgiving feats or faux pas photos with the Splendid Table’s Flickr photo stream.
Produced and distributed by American Public Media in St. Paul, Minn., The Splendid Table is a culinary, culture and lifestyle program that celebrates the intersection of food and life. The Splendid Table’s Lynne Rossetto Kasper takes public radio audiences on a journey of the senses andleads discussions with a variety of writers and personalities who share their passion for culinary delights.
