Thanksgiving is a wonderful feast that fills the house with incredible aromas. Though it is normally one of those occasions that warrants cooking in bulk, it does not have to be. We present Thanksgiving for Two.
Note: The Chef will demo the turkey and gravy, and will also serve a prepared Waldorf salad.
Techniques you will learn include: how to scale down Thanksgiving without compromising the feast; time management for the feast; the best method for making gravy; creative applications for fresh and dried fruit; homemade dressing from scratch
Roast Turkey Breast Basted with Apple and Butter
You will learn how to use a fresh apple, butter, and carefully chosen herbs to make flavorful roast turkey.

This rich gravy calls for five ingredients and is built upon the drippings from the roast turkey breast.
