The Chronicle Over Coffee

Welcome to a special, Thanksgiving edition of the Chronicle Over Coffee, in which we summarize the Wednesday food section over a cup of joe. This week, we’re including primarily holiday-related items because, well, that’s what the Chron is including.

First up, a batch of Chronicle interns and culinary students shares last-minute ideas for would-be gourmets. They advocate Cornish game hens over turkey, super-fancy green bean “un-casserole” chicken-apple-fennel sausage stuffing and pumpkin creme caramel. [No-sweat Thanksgiving]

Over at Taster’s Choice, the panel explores frozen apple pies with limited enthusiasm, for those non-bakers who didn’t put in their order with Uhuru soon enough. [Taster’s Choice]

And the Accidental Vegetarian bangs the drum for a meatless entree to compete with the turkey, suggesting a kale pie. [Accidental Vegetarian]

Happy Cornish game hen and kale pie day, everybody!
