Meyer Lemon Salsa Verde

Rag├╣ alla Bolognese
"Everyone in this region makes ragù alla bolognese," says Anna Nanni, a cook at Trattoria Amerigo dal 1934, outside Bologna in the city of Savigno. "From ten women, you’ll get ten different recipes, all of them traditional." Her ragù is brightly flavored and slightly tangy, owing to the addition of canned tomatoes.

Turkey and Spinach Risotto
This risotto is dotted with bites of tender roasted turkey, fresh spinach and the distinctive flavor of Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Turkey Stock
Although many holiday recipes call for chicken stock, the best turkey recipes call for authentic turkey stock. It’s easily made from the turkey neck and that little pouch of giblets that you’ll find inside the turkey.
Serve this creamy combination of yogurt, cucumber, and garlic as a refreshing appetizer with warm pita bread.
Ultimate Holiday Giblet Gravy
Giblets are not only traditional, they are vital to making richly flavored turkey gravy. Another crucial component is the deeply browned pan drippings leftover from roasting the turkey. In fact, this gravy is made directly in the roasting pan to capture every bit of flavor.
