by Umami Mart Staff

Can you believe that next Thursday is Thanksgiving?! If you’re feeling like us, Thanksgiving snuck up on us yet again. But this year, we have some kitchen accessories and tools that will make T-Day prep easy as (pumpkin) pie. Breaking the cork in a bottle of wine is such a bummer!

MOTOism: Living on Deadlines

by Moto Yamamoto

Apologies for my long absence, my life has been a bit chaotic. As you know, I teach cooking classes to Japanese ladies (some gents), and temaki sushi-making class for Americans. The sushi class is pretty consistent since I follow the same routine for each session, but coming up with recipes for the Japanese class occupies […]

The Hopkins Buffet: Holiday Cooking 101: Make-Ahead Gravy

by Yoko Kumano

Did you run out of gravy this year? Do you dream about swimming in vats of gravy? I’ve answered “yes” to both of these questions on many occasions. It was my first Thanksgiving this year, in my new home and I vowed that at MY Thanksgiving dinner, the gravy would flow like the Trevi Fountain. […]

ReCPY: Thanksgiving-esque Dinner

Tap This: Beer for Turkey Day

by CJ Mattiola

Most people show up with a bottle of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir to Thanksgiving. Snore. Bring something a little different and break out a few nice beers! In fact, I have read that pilgrims drank beer, not wine, at the very first Thanksgiving. A brewery was one of the first things they set up when settlers […]

ReCPY: Early Bird Thanksgiving (The Booblicious Edition)

by Moto Yamamoto

Thanksgiving dinner has become such a tradition in my household, and we hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner over the weekend. I am off to Florida now to enjoy the sun, beach, and a hassle-free Thanksgiving (if the TSA would just hire HOT men/women at the airport body check points, people wouldn’t complain so much, right?).
