Tis the season to start thinking about holiday menus and stocking up in preparations for the massive amount of flour and butter I am going to need in order to finish all my holiday baking. I have a new cookbook to add to my library this season, Macy’s Thanksgiving & Holiday Cookbook. The beautifully photographed cookbook features over 80 recipes from Macy’s Culinary Council including Rick Bayless, Cat Cora, Emeril Lagasse, Nancy Silverton, Wolfgang Puck and Marcus Samuelsson. The book starts out with a brief introduction to the council and includes a brief history about the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade and includes menu suggestions from superstar chefs including Marc Forgione, Michelle Bernstein and Takashi Yagihashi.
I was given the cookbook by my friends at Everywhere Society with a list of recipes to choose from but I pleaded we add one more to the list to include Chef’s Mix. <– click for recipe. This upscale take on the traditional Chex Mix will delight your palette with its super crunchy Marcona almonds and savory Worcestershire laced corn snacks. Let me tell you, I had a hard time letting it cool down before I devoured half a pan.
For the final day of our 12 Days of Giveaways we are please to give one lucky reader a copy of Macy’s Thanksgiving & Holiday Cookbook. Just to sweeten the deal and if you are going to make the Chef’s Mix then you are going to want to have these, we are also giving away a pair of Chicago Metallic Pro Grade Jelly Roll Pans. These are my absolute favorite pans.
The winner will also receive a pair of handmade pot holders from the Heart of Haiti project. Heart of Haiti, a collection of handmade pieces available on macys’com as well as some select Macy’s stores that help Haitians who are still recovering from the devastating earthquakes in 2010. Each piece you purchase helps bring money back to a country that is in economic crisis and very limited resources.
