Beyond turkey for Thanksgiving

Not everyone is crazy about having turkey on Thanksgiving. And for that we have a solution – November WAG. Senior writer Phil Hall dishes with cover subject David Standridge, Michelin-starred executive chef of The Shipwright’s Daughter in Mystic, who offers up recipes for his Swordfish Holiday Roast and Tuna Bolognese, inspired by that seafaring community.

Our story on the Lymphoma Research Foundation features a partnership with Sweet Loren’s cookie dough and its Mini Pumpkin Pie Bites.

Meanwhile, What’s Cooking columnist Rajni Menon, who draws on her Indian heritage for her monthly recipes, “curries” fall’s favor – and flavor – with a Lentil Curry that can easily be turned into a soup.

Looking to dine or take out Thanksgiving weekend if not on the day? Wonderful Dining columnist Jeremy Wayne considers Manhattan’s Le Bernadin and Red Rooster  and its two star chefs – Eric Ripert and Marcus Samuelsson respectively – who are also star philanthropists. Closer to home, Jeremy visits Westport’s Manna Toast,  the unusual, bread-based café that’s the “toast” of the town.

Wherever and whatever, enjoy the Thanksgiving Day holiday safely.
