Thursday 01:33 GMT

Earlier this fall, Karlos Baca, an indigenous food activist known for cooking beautiful foraged meals using traditional Native American ingredients and cooking methods, was approached by a regional food magazine: Would he like to provide a recipe for their Thanksgiving issue?

Where Thanksgiving Is Three Weeks Long

Thursday 12:43 GMT

The only federal holiday built entirely around a meal, Thanksgiving is to us what the Super Bowl is to the Sports section and what the Oscars are to the Arts section: a national, communal rite that inspires keen anticipation, dogged preparation and no small degree of excess.

Unlike the big game or awards show, Thanksgiving has no news to report on and few surprises to look forward to; for most Americans, the occasion is all about crowding the dinner table with the same old favorites and the same old faces.
