Carving lesson

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 1:13 pm

Like changing a tire, carving a fowl is a skill one may not use everyday — but is simply relieved to have when it’s needed. I remember in college, a table of 6 or 8 of us faced a small chicken on a platter. Not one with a clue how to begin. Quite embarrassing to be hacking willy-nilly at such a pretty bird, when I knew it could be carved delicately instead.

So on Thanksgiving, suddenly realizing that I still don’t possess the skill, I paid close attention to this carving master. With his able disecting of the bird, this turkey fed 12 people with meat left over.



  1. Practice makes perfect 😉
    Hope your turkey was as delicious as it looks!
