Let’s see… It’s Monday. Thanksgiving’s Thursday. And I’ll bet someone in your house — maybe everyone — is thinking about that meal.

Thanksgiving Day. If you cook, this is the day — maybe the week — the kitchen gets its full workout. Every chopping board. Every burner. Celery and sage and cornbread and apples. It’s a production.

We’re starting early, with the staff of America’s Test Kitchen. Great recipes. Great tips. And a long view of American cooking.

This hour, On Point: We’re firing up the Thanksgiving stove with America’s Test Kitchen.

You can join the conversation. Tell us what you think — here on this page, on Twitter, and on Facebook.
