A Holiday for Feasting

thanksgiving feastLast night, I finally had a chance to watch Chef, a movie I had missed in theaters this past summer despite my best intentions otherwise. In this movie, Jon Favreau plays a chef who, after receiving a scathing review from a powerful food blogger, opens a food truck and drives it across the country, stopping in food-famous cities along the way. A thoughtful, well-acted film about reigniting creative passions and rekindling family relationships, Chef also offers countless scenes filled with mouth-watering regional foods.

With Thanksgiving in less than a week, movies about food feel particularly appropriate. Although the holiday is ostensibly about spending time with loved ones and giving thanks for what we have, no Thanksgiving celebration is complete without a proper feast. Whether the feast includes traditional Thanksgiving dishes or more exotic fare, the food is what brings families and friends together in celebration.

Book Hunters in Brief #49: Feasts!

Don't get us wrong, Book Hunters believe in the importance...nay, the sanctity of tradition, but if you backed us into a corner we would reluctantly admit that, after so many years, some of the luster has worn off Aunt Freda's green bean casserole. So this year, we're going to shake things up a bit. If you are of like mind, Book Hunters recommend any one of these festive cookbooks.

Traveling Somewhere for Thanksgiving?

ThanksgivingHere are some audiobooks to set the mood:

Fall into These Audios

With the fall season in full swing, it’s time to get in the mood for one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. But before the big dinner and catching up with family and friends, I know many of you will be in the same boat as I am – spending a lot of time traveling or running countless errands in order to get ready for the big day.

No matter what your holiday plans are, a cozy audio will keep you feeling warm inside and out as you pass the time. The audios below are only a small sampling of the selection HCPL has to offer in cozy mysteries and fall-themed fiction. What is your favorite thing to listen to when fall comes around?
