Alton Brown host Thanksgiving LiveNEW YORK – October 17, 2011 – Home cooks—and their Thanksgiving dinner guests—have another reason to be thankful this year! The experts at Food Network come together to  answer viewers toughest questions about holiday meal-making on Thanksgiving Live!, a two-hour, interactive show hosted by famed Turkey-master Alton Brown, airing Sunday, November 20 from 12 pm to 2 pm EST/PST (west coast airing will be taped).  On hand to address perennial problems from dry turkey to lumpy gravy, as well as demonstrate helpful tips and delicious recipes will be Ted Allen, Sunny Anderson, Anne Burrell, Melissa d’Arabian, Bobby Flay, Alex Guarnaschelli and Rachael Ray.

“Thanksgiving Live! is a unique opportunity for home cooks to get expert holiday meal preparation advice from the television chefs they love and trust on the Sunday before the big day,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Food Network. “We’re excited to offer this one-of-a-kind television experience, in addition to our other media platforms,  to make Food Network the go-to resource for Thanksgiving food programming and instruction.”

In this first-ever Food Network live event, Alton will field viewers’ Thanksgiving meal preparation questions and refer them to an all-star cast of celebrity chefs. Viewers will not only have the opportunity to submit questions ahead of time via Facebook, Twitter (use #FNThanksgiving) but can also simultaneously submit questions during the broadcast.  Skype submissions (Username: FoodNetworkThanksgiving) will be exclusive to the two-hour broadcast.

As a side dish to the on-air broadcast, the network’s website (www.foodnetwork.com) will serve up a three-hour Thanksgiving Live webcast. Starting a half-hour before airtime, the site will stream a preshow featuring celebrity chef interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Alton and the cast preparing for the live television event. During the show, viewers can participate in a unique, co-viewing social experience implemented on FoodNetwork.com, Facebook.com/FoodNetwork and Livestream.com/FoodNetwork. A mix of real-time conversation including video, photos, Facebook and Twitter posts, all seamlessly integrated into the live video stream, it will allow chefs and viewers to share tips, recipes and commentary. After the on-air broadcast concludes as the cast sit down to enjoy the Thanksgiving feast they prepared during the show, the online streaming video will continue with post-show coverage. Each guest will contribute a signature dish, covering everything from starters to desserts—and Alton Brown will carve the turkey!

I hopped over to BabelFish and tried to translate e okul veli bilgilendirme sistemi.  I thought with all of those vowels at the end of the words it’s got to be a romance language so I went for Italian.  It wasn’t Italian.  It wasn’t Spanish, French or Portuguese either.  On a whim I tried both Russian and German to no avail.  Eventually, it could have been minutes or months, I stumbled over a page that translated it for me from Turkish.

Apparently it means e-school parent information system.  I know, that’s not a helluva lot of help is it?  But to the people of Turkey it means something.  My guess is that one of my 600+ posts had one paragraph that had all of those words in it.  And then somewhere down the line it got translated into Turkish.

Well, to my Turkish guests I’d like to say benim g?da sitesi Türk halk?na ho? geldiniz.

How To Carve a Turkey

It’s the holiday season and many of you may be carving a turkey for the first time for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  The folks at the Washington Post put together a great video to walk you through the process.  Here it is:

Don’t forget if you have questions about cooking a turkey, you can call the “Butterball turkey talk line,” at 1-800-BUTTERBALL (800-288-8372).

Here’s a chart to use for cooking times:

Turkey Roasting Chart (for 325 °F)

Plane Turkey:
8 to 12 pounds – 2 3/4 to 3 hours
12 to 14 pounds – 3 to 3 3/4 hours
14 to 18 pounds – 3 3/4 to 4 1/4 hours
18 to 20 pounds – 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 hours
20 to 24 pounds – 4 1/2 to 5 hours

Stuffed Turkey:
8 to 12 pounds – 3 to 3 1/2 hours
12 to 14 pounds – 3 1/2 to 4 hours
14 to 18 pounds – 4 to 4 1/4 hours
18 to 20 pounds – 4 1/4 to 4 3/4 hours
20 to 24 pounds – 4 3/4 to 5 1/4 hours

For stuffed turkeys – the stuffing should reach an internal temperature of 165 °F.

If you are interested in frying a turkey (it’s fantastic but also quite dangerous) then here is the video to watch from Food Network chef and resident food scientist Alton Brown:

Never Diet – Change Your Lifestyle

NEWSFLASH: Diets do not work. There are no shortcuts!

At least no healthy ones, anyway. Sure you can have some hack stick the business end of a Oreck in your gut or take enough appetite suppressants to wire your central nervous system but you will not be any healthier. Diets do not work. Diet is the key. When you read of the latest diet you are not hearing about diet, you are hearing about a fad and none of them are healthy.

“What about the Mediterranean Diet,” you may ask, “Isn’t that supposed to be healthy?” When the phrase Mediterranean Diet comes up it does not mean a weight loss program, it means the diet of the people of the Mediterranean Sea.

What they eat everyday of their lives and yes that is as healthy as you will ever find. There are tons of studies that show us a lifetime commitment to eating more whole grains, fruits and vegetables and a decreasing emphasis on animal protein (fish first, then poultry, and finally beef/goat/lamb/dairy/etc.) and sugar is the way to go. Add in the proper amount of exercise and you have the recipe for a healthy life. Do not do this and nothing else you do is healthy. Proper diet and exercise is the way to go.

But the endless cycle of weight loss/weight gain is worse for your body than toting around that spare tire. Need to know more about the Mediterranean Diet? Check out the American Heart Association’s research.
