Thanksgiving To-Go at Baur au Lac, Switzerland

In 2014, Zurich’s iconic Baur au Lac hotel (where Daniel Humm trained at the hotel’s Michelin-starred Pavillion) prepared a Thanksgiving meal as a special treat for a group of American guests staying on-site. When word got out locally about the hotel’s traditional Thanksgiving meal and the Head Chef Maurice Marro’s golden turkey, the orders came in. For the third year now, the luxury hotel will prepare its Thanksgiving dinner to-go, available for delivery and pick up at the hotel. The turkeys are served with an assortment of traditional sides, as well as a tray of farce (stuffing), a savory mixture of veal, pork, apples, shallots and parsley. Recipes for both the turkey and stuffing can be provided.

This year, QT Port Douglas has a special Thanksgiving feast planned for a “taste of fall” in the Aussie tropical paradise of Queensland, home to the Great Barrier Reef. Guests can enjoy holiday classics like wood-roasted yams seasoned with nutmeg and thyme, a clay baked turkey and even pumpkin pie topped with whipped Chantilly cream.  The package is priced at $65 per person and includes a welcome drink upon arrival.
