It's almost Thanksgiving and you know what that means—scouring magazines for hours in search of recipes, braving the crowds at the grocery store, and hosting an exhausting meal.
Or you could leave the work to your favorite restaurant and skip straight to the part when you're enjoying your turkey dinner, glass of wine in hand, nary a dirty dish in sight. Now that's something to celebrate. It may sound too good to be true, but in fact, dozens of restaurants around Atlanta are offering to-go options, allowing you to enjoy the holiday in the comfort of your own home, without all the hard work.
Celebrate stress-free holidays thanks to Star Provisions, the gourmet market run by Executive chef-owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford R. Harrison. The Thanksgiving to-go menu features options like a pastured whole turkey, heritage black turkey, or bone in breast; the market can brine your turkey before you pick it up. Also available are typical holiday fixings such as Yukon Gold potato puree, sage and apple dressing, braised local greens, and seasonal pies such as pecan, apple, and pumpkin.
