Turkey Day Prep
If you're a little unsteady in the kitchen—especially cooking for the holidays—you might want to brush up in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner with classes designed to make Thanksgiving dinner spectacular. On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Salt Lake Culinary Center (2233 S. 300 East) will offer "Thanksgiving 101: Putting Confidence in the Hands of the Timid." It's an all-day class with lessons on cooking honey-brined turkey, maple-glazed yams, leek-bacon-mushroom stuffing, piquant cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and much more. Wednesday, Nov. 25 is Pie Day at the Culinary Center, with instruction on how to make delicious, beautiful holiday pies. Students will take home whole pies for their holiday celebrations. To sign up, visit SaltLakeCulinaryCenter.com.

Thanksgiving, Delivered
If you'd prefer to stay out of the kitchen on Thanksgiving Day and let someone else do the cooking, look no further than Cuisine Unlimited. The award-winning Salt Lake City-based catering and special-events company can provide everything—and I mean everything—you could possible need for your holiday meals. Their "Carefree Thanksgiving" package includes an herb-roasted turkey, a choice of stuffings, a selection of sides, vegetables, salads, rolls, desserts and much more. Certified organic turkeys are also available. Cuisine Unlimited also offers buffet meals, hors d'oeuvre party menus, Christmas feasts, holiday brunch and other food-and-drink packages to make your holidays sparkle. See the delectable options at CuisineUnlimited.com.

Greek Fare, Fast
GR Kitchen has opened at 7702 Union Park Ave. in Sandy with a modern take on Greek fast food. The eatery is set up Chipotle-style, where customers can customize their meal from a "build-your-own" menu. Decide first whether you want a gyro, salad or combination plate, and then select a protein like gyro meat, spit-fired pork or chicken, falafel or chicken souvlaki. Top it off with tzadziki, hummus, kafteri, veggies or feta & olives. Add sides such as pilaf, quinoa and couscous, sweets like baklava, and craft beer if you'd care to. Call 801-352-7406 or visit EatGRKitchen.com for more information.
