According to the Craigie on Main website:

The talented young chef will demonstrate three different turkey cooking techniques: old school roasting; spatchcocking -which involves cutting out the backbone, pressing the turkey to flatten it, and brushing it with a mix of olive oil, salt, and pepper; and the 2-cook method where the legs are separated from the breasts.

He will also show participants the correct way to carve a turkey, discussing several techniques and the best knives to choose, as well as tell you what to do with all those turkey leftovers.

Craigie on Main’s sommelier, Carl York and the bartending team will join in the fun, hosting an in-depth conversation about the best wines to pair with your meal, as well as a few fabulous Thanksgiving cocktails to wow your guests.
