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. You won't find newfangled recipes or novel twists on old classics (Sifton is decidedly anti-tandoori turkey), but we'll wager that you won't miss them after trying any of the superlative recipes housed within.
