Carving a Winner

The Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey

From the Archives: The Thanksgiving turkey is the one dish each year that’s make or break, and it’s all yours. Get the turkey right and you’ll be giving warm handshakes and sipping bourbon all night; dry it out and you’ve brought a dark cloud over the extended family. The good news is, roasting the big bird is easier than running the fumblerooski against the in-laws — and that works every year. To find the most direct route to turkey perfection, we consulted with chef Harold Moore for his foolproof recipe.

Mulled Wine, Three Ways

From the Archives: Mulled wine is the perfect drink for the holiday season: just pleasant and alcoholic enough to warm everyone up, but not like handing out rounds of high-octane Manhattans that could turn Thanksgiving dinner into an episode worthy of Jenny Jones. We tapped the expertise of Jane Elkins, former and current barkeep at some of New York City’s best cocktail haunts, for three variations of mulled wine, each rooted in tradition and brushed up with ingenuity from behind her bar.

The Restaurant Issue

Food has become a lot of things in recent years: a hobby, a fetish, a touchstone of cultural sophistication, molecularly presented, fresher and more delicious. Most of all, we’ve been riding a wave of interest driven by better restaurants with chefs and staffs who care about using real ingredients to make food that’s better than ever. And not just in big cities: the reign of Applebee’s and TGI Fridays in suburban strip malls is coming to an end. In this year’s Restaurant Issue, we take our annual survey of the 25 Best Restaurants in America, cook with star chefs, visit one of New York’s great pizza makers, read the best new cookbooks and more. No need for reservations. Your table is ready.

Surf’s Up: 5 Great All-Around Surfboards

From the Archives: Choosing a surfboard is no simple matter. There are lots of factors to consider, like the shape of the board, the size, rocker and rails, tails and fins. There are eggs and fish — and we’re not talking about breakfast options. The ideal board for beginners is long, wide and thick since it’s stable for both paddling and for taking off on a wave. Here are five that fit that description to a T.
