ROCHESTER - Every year as Turkey Day approaches, hosts by the hundreds phone in, write, email, and tweet Wegmans Food Markets for answers to questions surrounding preparation and cooking for Thanksgiving dinner.
Following the success of Wegmans' first #Turkey911 Twitter chat in 2011, executive chef Mark Makovec is once again offering help to home cooks via Twitter leading up to Thanksgiving.
"There are always questions, whether someone is cooking the feast for the very first time or has been doing it for years," says Makovec. "We know our customers are especially busy during the holidays, and this is a way to provide some on-the-go guidance in a way that some find most convenient."
Wondering how to prep the turkey for roasting, how long to roast it so it's safely done but not dried out, or how to make green beans so craveable that everyone at the table asks for a second helping? Makovec will be standing by to answer customer questions about cooking turkey, side dishes and vegetables from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Wednesday. Questions may be submitted by tweeting to @Wegmans and using the #turkey911 hashtag.
The "Twitter Q&A" will also be featured on the homepage of Wegmans.com for anyone who would like to follow along.
For even more help in the kitchen, frequently asked Thanksgiving dinner questions, and answers are also on wegmans.com, and a variety of how-to videos are available on the Wegmans YouTube channel.
