Appetites: Tips and last-minute recipes for Thanksgiving dinner with Francis Lam

Andy Lund for APM Studios

Just a day to go before Thanksgiving and for those in charge of dinner — it’s crunch time. But thankfully, Francis Lam and company will be on hand to help with any kitchen emergencies or simply to chat for all those cooking tomorrow.

As he has in years past, Lam will be hosting Turkey Confidential, the annual Thanksgiving special from The Splendid Table. He’s also invited a fun list of guests to join him:

  • Chef Kristen Kish of Top Chef fame

  • Chef and writer Abra Berens, author of Pulp, A Practical Guide to Cooking with Fruit

  • Writer Jocelyn Delk Adams, author of Grandbaby Cakes

  • Writer Dan Pelosi, author of Let’s Eat, 101 Recipes to Fill Your Heart and Home

Ahead of the big day, Lam shared some tips for preventing a Thanksgiving disaster and last-minute recipe ideas with our Catharine Richert.
