Thank you so much to everyone that listened to -- and called in to talk with Lynne and Francis for -- Turkey Confidential 2017. If you missed it live, you can listen to the full show here.

Happy Thanksgiving from The Splendid Table

The Splendid Table's annual live Thanksgiving call-in show is back on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 23, 12 PM-2 PM ET. This year we have double the fun with hosts Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Francis Lam tag teaming. This will be Lynne's last Turkey Confidential as she retires at the end of 2017 and turns over the reins to Francis in 2018. Join us as Lynne and Francis take calls and come to the rescue of Thanksgiving cooks, kitchen helpers, and dinner guests alike on the biggest cooking day of the year. They'll also be joined by special guests -- chefs/restaurateurs Lidia Bastianich and Marcus Samuelsson, comedian/actor Amy Sedaris from At Home with Amy Sedaris, and test cook extraordinaire Dan Souza of America's Test Kitchen -- to talk about their favorite Thanksgiving dishes and memories. Listen to Turkey Confidential 2017 on your local public radio station or listen live online here.
