For many of us, coffee is utilitarian, the tool that knocks us awake in the morning.  For Justice Sky, of Ano Kissaten Coffee Roasters, it's much more than that - it's a world of flavors specific to where the beans are grown.  Justice walks Jeff Lockwood through making coffee from roasting raw beans to brewing the perfect cup - for you and for the bean.

With a worldwide pandemic raging, getting together for a big meal is a terrible idea.  Finding ways to shrink Thanksgiving classics down?  Fantastic idea.  Jeff Lockwood makes turkey ballotines (and has unkind things to say about the turducken), as well as sweet potato gnocchi and green bean casserole, with a remote appearance from Teri Robl's stuffin' muffins.

There comes a time in a hen's life where she's not laying too much, and you have to make some decisions.  One of the options, the one Jeff Lockwood chooses this week, is stock - the best stock you can make.  Stock leads inexorably to soup - potato leek, this time.
