Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. In a premature fit of holiday reverie, I'm thinking back to a Turkey Day we hosted while living in Munich. In lieu of a 20-pound tom, I procured a couple of smaller birds; they were about seven pounds, if memory serves. Veggies and bread were plentiful, pumpkin pie was replaced by apple strudel, and, in the end, a reasonable facsimile of the traditional American dinner was served.
This Combi-Steam oven, with its surprisingly spacious cavity and multiple cooking modes, would be an appliance to be grateful for, then or now. mieleusa.com
