No slouch at dazzling dinner guests, he seems as willing to offer a daunting nouvelle-Asian Christmas goose as a more ”traditional” 17-dish Thanksgiving dinner that proceeds through oysters, clams, lobster stew, roast saddle of venison, and homemade sausages — and features a specially fed turkey ”killed three days earlier” in Cooking From New England.
