Thanksgiving Cooking Questions & Emergencies Answered LIVE on Turkey Confidential


St. Paul, Minn. -(November 1, 2010) – Unanimously anticipated, and unanimously feared, Thanksgiving Day is a time when cooks unite – and “Turkey Confidential” is here to help. Now in its sixth year, “Turkey Confidential”, from American Public Media’s The Splendid Table, offers cooks an open line to food expert and host Lynne Rossetto Kasper to answer their calls, questions and occasional cries for help. A tradition in kitchen’s across the nation, Kasper plays “culinary turkey triage nurse” LIVE on Thanksgiving morning from 11am ET – 1pm ET.

Joining the program this year are international chef and food advocate Jamie Oliver, chef Jose Andres, wine entrepreneur Joshua Wesson, and regular Splendid Table sleeves-up eating guides Jane and Michael Stern. Don’t miss Lynne answering listener calls that, if the past is any indication, will range from the hilarious (turkey locked in the oven on self-clean cycle) to the naively hopeful (turkey still frozen solid). With a little luck, and some good advice, Lynne and guests will strive to lead all to a delicious meal and a happy ending.

Listeners can call 1.800.537.5252 for intervention assistance with their impending disasters. Join the fun online at for advice, success stories and menu recipes, and browse or show the nation your own Thanksgiving feats or faux pas photos with the Splendid Table’s Flickr photo stream.

Produced and distributed by American Public Media in St. Paul, Minn., The Splendid Table is a culinary, culture and lifestyle program that celebrates the intersection of food and life. The Splendid Table’s Lynne Rossetto Kasper takes public radio audiences on a journey of the senses and leads discussions with a variety of writers and personalities who share their passion for culinary delights.
