Cook up a Feast!

And your Library can help.  It's that time of year when people begin to think about Turkey and stuffing and making gravy and what to do about green beans.  So check out one of these titles on holiday prepration, food cultures,  or just a plain cook book.  Maybe you, too, can whip up Thanksgiving dinner like Julia Child!
