Moraine Park Technical College and the new Festival Foods in Fond du Lac are teaming up to bring you helpful hints on how best to prepare and carve your Thanksgiving turkey as well as get some suggestions on the best wine choices to complement your dinner.


 “Preparing Thanksgiving Dinner” will take place on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10 to 11 a.m. in the Deli seating area of Festival Foods. Moraine Park culinary arts instructor Lois Zingsheim will lead the demonstration with the assistance of two culinary arts students. The free demonstration will include proper defrosting techniques, turkey preparation and how to truss the turkey. The demonstration will also include proper carving techniques, and questions will be taken throughout the demonstration.  


“We are very excited to partner with Moraine Park and offer a free class on the safe preparation of turkey for Thanksgiving Dinner,” said Darrin Kuehn, Festival Foods store director.  “Additionally, we are excited about the wine tasting that will be part of the class. The sampling of wines will give our guests hands-on tasting and knowledge of the wines to pair with their dinner. Our guests have been asking for cooking classes. It is our pleasure to bring this first class to our guests for one of the most important dinners of the year.”


“This type of experience is invaluable for our students,” said Zingsheim. “They will be demonstrating their culinary skills and have the opportunity to experience the instructional-side of a learning activity.”


Guests interested in participating in “Preparing Thanksgiving Dinner" should sign up at the Festival Foods service counter. For more information, stop in or call Festival Foods at 920-273-0490.
