St. Paul, Minn., November 19, 2009: Everyone at Thanksgiving knows the turkey is in the oven…some people are sneaking peaks at it while others are pretending to be busy watching football, feigning indifference. But they all know someone’s in the kitchen cooking; yet when that final product hits the table, everyone’s a critic.

On the biggest cooking day of the year, with too many cooks (seasoned and unseasoned) in the kitchen, something’s bound to go awry. Enter Turkey Confidentialó an annual special from American Public Media’s The Splendid Tableóoffering cooks, confused or celebrating, a chance to call in and have their “turkey triage” questions answered LIVE on public radio stations across the nation. Host Lynne Rossetto Kasper, along with culinary guests, lightens up the sometimes tense mood in the kitchen with her expertise, great attitude and great laugh.

Guests this year include: Garrison Keillor, host of American Public Media’s A Prairie Home Companion, Christopher Kimball, Cookís Illustrated editor and host of public television’s cooking show America’s Test Kitchen, as well as The Splendid Table’s regular contributers, wine wit Joshua Wesson and road food warriors Jane and Michael Stern.
