Thanksgiving meal

Now that you’ve finished planning, prepping, basting, baking, serving, and cleaning, imagine this: Thanksgiving every day. For six months. 

During next year’s Expo Milano, launching in May 2015, that’s just what the USA Pavilion will be serving up—Thanksgiving piled on a bun at our Food Truck Nation exhibit, and in all of it’s prandial glory at the full-service, pop-up James Beard American Restaurant located in Central Milan.
 
Some 65,000 guests are expected to come to sample the food of this great American Holiday. The logistics of sourcing, shipping, receiving, preparing and serving thousands of turkeys, tons of sweet potatoes, vats of cranberry sauce, and a shipping container full of stuffing in Italy are no small feat. Our culinary team is hard at work making the plans, standardizing the recipes, setting up the kitchens, and getting everything ready for the great USA Pavilion Thanksgiving celebration. Won’t you join us?

Oh, and does anybody know the number for the Butterball Hotline in Italy?
