The Year's Culinary Highlight
In announcing the new Dining In editor, the Times noted thxgiving being the "Super Bowl" of issues.
Is thxgiving really the food Super Bowl of the year? I agree in the sense that it's entirely food-centric i.e. no one really "celebrates" anything and is distracted by another purpose. (though we should be)
On the other hand, it's a pretty uninteresting food day. Year after year we make the same stuff, and since to cook is partially to create, it fails on that score.
Thxgiving: definitely food. Less so culinary.
