On the Road? You Can Still Eat Like It’s Thanksgiving
By Charu Suri

I read a very fascinating article from the New York Times Travel section last week. It was published on November 11, 2015, just in time for the upcoming holidays. The article talks about how many global destinations will be offering traditional Thanksgiving dinners for travelers this year. Some of the examples given in the article include places like Jamaica, specifically Strawberry Hill, that will be serving a buffet with turkey, chicken, ribs and fish, all prepared in the traditional jerk fashion along with desserts and rum cocktails with a reasonable price per person. The Regent Porto Montenegro will also offer a four course meal on November 26 that includes a slow-cooked turkey dish and my favorite one The Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong’s Cake Shop that has created portable and stylish Thanksgiving boxes with roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, giblet gravy, and dessert, per family-size box.
The article also make mention of some domestic destination such as Westin La Paloma’s Azul restaurant in Tucson that will be serving agave chile-rubbed turkey with poblano crema and cornbread chorizo stuffing.
Albert Herrera, senior vice president for global product partnership at the travel company Virtuoso, said that his company has seeing an increase interest in travel to international destination to experience and celebrate the holiday with a traditional turkey feast.
