Ruth Reichl, the editor of Gourmet, doesn't want guests to bring food for Thanksgiving. "I want my guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy the food. Now if they want to help with the dishes, that's another story," Reichl told Serious Eats.
How about you? Are your Thanksgiving guests bringing food, helping in the kitchen or do you like to cook solo like Reichel?
Giveaway Alert: Serious Eats is giving away D'Artagnan organic, free-range turkeys every day this week. If we had an extra, free turkey to test a new recipe, we just might wrap a turkey in bacon.
