Butterball Expert Talks Turkey; Local Chefs Serve Dinner Tips; Helping Clevelanders in Need

Featured Audio

Thanksgiving is a day for enjoying family and eating turkey, but not if you forget to start defrosting that turkey the day before Thanksgiving. On a day that's centered around food, a lot can go wrong. What are the dos and definitely don'ts on the big day? What wines to pair? Should stuffing be cooked in the bird? We talk with local chefs and food purveyors, as well as a veteran Butterball Talk-line expert. Then, how we can help Clevelanders in need all year long.
