It seems to happen every year: You spend weeks planning a perfect holiday dinner, and 30 minutes before your family sits down at the table, the bird is underdone and your brain is overcooked.
We kind of suspect those kitchen mishaps never happen to Amanda and Merrill of Food52, but they’re nice enough to play along. Their latest package, #F5203, was all about the holiday roast, and it featured some great tools (and even better tips) for mastering the big meal.
Here’s an excerpt from their letter, and a few shots of the package contents. Curious? Grab their next mailing.
"The holidays are our Super Bowl, and we’re in full-on prep mode. We figured you might be, too, so we wanted to let you in on two tools that are essential to successful roasts, turkeys, and sauces. This ball of sturdy cotton twine comes from Kaufmann Mercantile, one of our favorite sources for household goods. Catamount makes beakers and all manner of lab tools——and for some reason, they also make an excellent gravy separator.”
