Some years ago I came upon a cookbook, simply titled “The Thanksgiving Cookbook,” by a woman named Holly Garrison. It has no pictures. Not a one, save for a few rudimentary drawings of how to carve various meats and set a table. It does, however, have what I love. Stories. Each recipe has a little story with it. No more than a paragraph, but enough to draw me in. I pull it out and read it cover to cover every October (bearing in mind again, dear readers, that Thanksgiving in Canada is this weekend). It covers everything, from appetizers, soups and salads, to sauces, pickles, chutneys, sides, mains… There are breads and desserts, too. And each with a little story. That said, the condiment section has always intrigued me. Spiced seckel pears, gingery apple relish, curried peaches, and pumpkin pickles.
