The Chronicle Over Coffee

Let’s take a look at this morning’s food section over this morning’s pick-me-up, shall we?

• A Turkey Training Camp showdown between Michael Mina and Douglas Keane leaves civilian judges hungry for more. [Four-star face-off]

• Taster’s Choice goes after chestnuts, and nabs one for the hall of fame. [Minerve chestnuts crack the Hall of Fame]

• It might be a meager hall this year, but you’re still going to binge on Dungeness, we bet, and you’ll still run out of ideas to cook them. Tara Duggan has some south-of-the-border suggestions. [Dungeness crab goes Mexican]

• Not that we want you to turn away from our own, similar (but better) resource, but if you are looking for Thanksgiving restaurant options, the Chron does list some. [Where to dine out on Thanksgiving]

• And a new Michael Mina hire, an old Myth hand burns through general managers, and a changing of the guard at Mission Beach Cafe. [Inside Scoop]
