So you’ve decided to host Thanksgiving at your place. Congrats! Are you ready for all the cooking that goes along with it?
If the stress of cooking dampens the prospect of hosting for family and friends this holiday season, don’t let that get you down. Avoid any kitchen disasters and bring the best of the Hudson Valley home by shopping local eateries for traditional dishes. Whether you need turkey for 10 or pie for 27, you’ll find everything you need to fill your tablescape on Turkey Day.
While turkey is undoubtedly the symbol of Thanksgiving, pie is the true star of the show. End the holiday on a sweet note with the help of Apple Pie Bakery Café in Hyde Park. In honor of the food-focused holiday, the Hudson Valley favorite serves up everyone’s favorite pies in flavors like apple, pumpkin, and pecan. Customization is key here, with options for double crust or crumb apple pies along with no sugar-added and gluten-free varieties for those with restrictions. One thing to note: if you purchase a frozen pie, which comes with baking instructions, sanding sugar, and pie shine, you’ll need to bake it yourself at home. On the savory end of the spectrum, the Culinary offshoot also does corn bread pudding, stuffing, and complete Thanksgiving dinner kits to-go.

The Hudson Valley barbecue go-to brings its A-game this Thanksgiving with turkey-centric solutions that are bound to sell out. Anyone who orders can choose between a smoked bird, which is herb-brined for 24 hours, and a fried one, which gets a good basting with a choice of sauces that range from herb butter and lemon pepper to barbecue and Jamaican jerk. Add on two Southern-style sides like mac and cheese or candied yams, then round it all out with an apple, pecan, pumpkin, or sweet potato pie. Both the smoked and fried turkey packages come with smoked sausage cornbread stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy for 10 people, making them a dream for fuss-free holiday celebrations at home.
