Talking turkey about that for which we are thankful

I’m prepping for vacation and the deadlines that follow. Here’s where you come in:

What foods, beverages, restaurants, chefs — and anything else culinary — would you like to give thanks for this Thanksgiving?

Here’s the rule: It has to be in or near the South Sound.

Here’s an example:

I’m thankful for Peterson Cheese in Auburn, distributors of world-class imported and domestic cheese. If you’ve purchased (and enjoyed) a chunk of good Pave d’Affinois or Vermont cheddar in the Puget Sound, chances are Peterson played a part.

So tell me about that iconic burger drive-in on Highway 99, that chef who’s taking tasty risks, or that vanilla porter at The Harmon.

My story — tentative headline: Ed Murrieta Gives Thanks — will publish Nov. 16 in the TNT’s GO section.

Along with some of your comments.

So get to commenting.
