It’s that time of the year again: lots of food and drinks, getting together with friends and family, and maybe a little bit of bickering. And the best part of Thanksgiving? The legendary extra kilos on the scale the next morning.
We suggest you avoid avoiding the inevitable, put on your largest pair of pants, and enjoy a delicious turkey (and all the other traditional Thanksgiving dishes) on Thursday, November 24th.
If you dare not cook a turkey by yourself, here is where you can order from:
Hünkar – order 1 week in advance

If the thought of cooking a Thanksgiving dinner is daunting, there is always a caterer who will go through the pain for you. Vanesserie will prepare not just turkey but a full-blown Thanksgiving dinner including the pumpkin pie, the stuffing, and the potatoes— whatever your heart desires. Just place an order at least three days in advance, and keep in mind that the minimum number of people that they will create a Thanksgiving dinner for is six and the maximum is forty.
If a set menu suits you right, order Süprem Catering’s Thanksgiving menu that includes bresaola with fig and mascarpone on crackers, pumpkin soup, turkey with mulberry sauce, red cabbage with grapes, scalloped potatoes and fennel, and apple crumble. Just order three days in advance whether you’re a party of eight or 500, and you’re good to go.
If you don’t enjoy the leftover-turkey-fest that follows Thanksgiving, order Thanksgiving menus that feature turkey drumsticks instead of an entire turkey from Dream Day, a caterer that is committed to everything local and organic. Since you’re going easy with the main meal, order both the pumpkin pie and the pumpkin tart.
If you're too late to buy a turkey or arrange a caterer, don't sweat it. Just order a roast chicken from WienerWald and have a humble Thanksgiving dinner. After all, it's all about getting together with friends and family, right?
