Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well

Thanksgiving may come but once a year, but Sam Sifton's highly opinionated and surprisingly humorous Thanksgiving: How to Cook It Well
($18) is still a best buy, and pretty much the be-all and end-all guide to preparing and planning for a traditional Thanksgiving feast.
