You wouldn’t believe how expensive it is to get a whole turkey in Paris. Luckily, I did find one for Turkey Day this year.
I am holding a thanksgiving dinner for all of my international friends and several of my fellow americans I have met abroad. They are all very thankful to have a place to be on the holiday (and I’m sure the food has something to do with it as well.)
I’ve ordered a fresh 10 pound turkey to be picked up at my boulangerie on Friday, as I am holding the dinner on Saturday. The turkey will have never been frozen, and I am hoping it is worth the 65€ I spent on it. My friends are helping pay for the meal, so I am not concerned. It is the time of the year for giving after all, and I am certainly thankful for all of the wonderful people I have met here in Paris.
Finding cornbread for my signature stuffing has been a task as well. I found a store in the center of Paris named “Thanksgiving” (how appropriate.) I think I can get all of the necessities there, at a stiff price, as they have all been imported.
Wish me luck, and I will post tons of pictures after the festivities!
Here they are!!
