The Splendid Table's Turkey Confidential

(Rochester, NY) – For nearly 15 years, listeners across the country have avoided Thanksgiving Day cooking mishaps by tuning in to The Splendid Table’s live call-in show, “Turkey Confidential.” This year marks longtime Splendid Table host Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s final year at the other end of the phone line—and she’ll be joined by the show’s new host Francis Lam. A holiday tradition in kitchens from coast-to-coast, “Turkey Confidential” gives cooks an open line to expert advice, not to mention great holiday storytelling with special guests. Lynne, Francis and their guests will answer questions live on The Splendid Table's "Turkey Confidential" Thanksgiving morning from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on AM 1370.

An all-star lineup of guests will join Lynne and Francis this year: Marcus Samuelsson, award-winning celebrity chef and restaurateur, Lidia Bastianich, television personality, cookbook author and restaurateur and Amy Sedaris, best-selling author, comedian and host of a new show on truTV “At Home with Amy Sedaris.”
