T-Day The Easy Way
It’s that time of year, time to plan the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner. Make it easy on yourself with some one-stop shopping at The Shops at Columbus Circle, where you’ll find everything you need to whip up a feast with little effort. Or you can order a pre-made spread that will fool everyone into thinking you spent hours slaving in the kitchen.
Williams-Sonoma sells the tools and ingredients that will make you look like a culinary superstar. If you want Williams-Sonoma to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for you, put in your order before November 18. The complete dinner includes a free-range turkey from Sonoma County’s legendary Willie Bird ranch. And don't miss Williams-Sonoma's white porcelain plates that say “Thankful,” as well as the white ceramic turkey-shaped candleholders.
At Whole Foods Market, the emphasis is on healthy locally sourced ingredients, including a butcher that stocks natural turkeys with no additives. Put in your order by November 22 for a ready-made meal worthy of a Norman Rockwell painting. There are also variations like turducken (a combo of turkey, duck, and chicken) or a vegan meat-free garden turkey.
When it comes to Thanksgiving dessert, pie is the all-American way to go. Bouchon Bakery sells its addictive apple pie — where the fruit is deglazed with caramel syrup — made to order, along with a buttery pecan and a simply spiced pumpkin pie. Place your order by November 21.
Or stop by the high-end candy store Sugarfina. You’ll find seasonally appropriate sweets like pumpkin-pie caramels and apple-pie fruit jellies. Plus, the “Thank You” three-piece bento set makes a great hostess gift. It’s a whimsical touch that will help make this year’s Thanksgiving dinner a meal to remember.
