Cafe Drake has lately eschewed turkey kitchen duty these past few November holidays in favor of being a seated guest at the annual fall feast. Thanksgiving 2011 was a real banner day thanks to hostess Elfe C. and family, grazing as we did for hours through a groaning buffet table and plentifully stocked bar. Not to mention the best, most succulent and well seasoned turkey we've tasted in many a (harvest) moon!
|In this instance too mank cooks did definitely NOT spoil the sauce, or gravy.|

|Our extraordinary hostess Elfe C.!!|
