Post-Halloween sugar crashes aside, we're feeling pretty great about the upcoming holiday season. Next on the docket: Thanksgiving. In Portland, we can't help but care a lot about our food and cooking. Beyond the chance to eat, drink and be merry with our nearest and dearest, Thanksgiving gifts us an opportunity to pull out the big guns and flex our culinary muscles. The old adage of 'you eat with your eyes first' remains ever true - we like our cookery and kitchenware to look and feel as good as they work. Behold, the Schoolhouse Kitchen Essentials for Thanksgiving. Take a gander, and start getting excited for the feast of the year.
