One of the best things about gravy, besides the fact that it's frequently a roast turkey's saving grace, is that you can custom-tailor it to any tastes. One year I added orange zest for a just-bold-enough citrusy kick. Last year we went super-funky and rustic with all the giblets (and then some). This year I find myself in a Riesling phase — dry, not sweet — but I can only imagine a sweet Riesling would make a delicious turkey gravy as well, as would your favorite white wine.

I made this Thanksgiving turkey cacciatore in honor of those who spring for the dark meat, not for fans of that awesome famous dry white meat that keeps everyone coming back for more (gravy).

Thanks to our editorial intern Laila, we've been pretty solidly educated on the glories of the various kinds of Middle Eastern street food she grew up with. First she brought Turkey's wet burger to our attention. Then we learned about koshary, the most delicious way to feed the most people with the least effort, via Egypt's Rachael Ray. Now with knowledge of kumpir — a specialty in Ortaköy, Istanbul — I'll attempt to reinvent the baked potato. Or at least use up a lot of leftovers all at once.
