Last night I was watching an ancient Iron Chef, from the original series where everything was dubbed, May 7, 1999. It was a famous chef in Japan, Takeshi Ōkubo, who specialized in Chinese cuisine, up against the Chinese Iron Chef, Chen Kenichi.

Without further ado, the recipe!

What Perfect Turkey is Supposed to Be

I didn’t go to my Grandmother’s for Thanksgiving. My mother and I usually cooked a Cornish hen and left it at that. When my mother died, I moved in with my Aunt Georgia, Grandmother, and Grandfather. This was when I discovered a really good turkey, the way turkey was supposed to be.
