Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this is your chance to win a turkey dinner for six, and a bottle of wine, all of which will be delivered to your home next Thursday.
The bird and all the fixings come courtesy of Culinary Capers, which is handling the Thanksgiving dinner at Sequoia Café (see details below) on November 27. The Wine Republic is donating a bottle of Yering Station E.D. Pinot Noir 2006 to go along with the turkey (available at Sequoia for RMB148 per bottle for Thanksgiving).
To enter the contest, simply leave a comment and tell us one thing you are thankful for in Beijing. Yes, I know my contests tend to have sillier themes, but this has been a topsy-turvy year for China – from the Sichuan earthquake to the Beijing Olympics – so why not consider what we appreciate about living here?
The deadline for entries is Friday at 3 PM and I aim to do the draw the same afternoon.
This is the second-last of a barrage of contests I have had in the queue. And I’ll soon have a list of some of the Thanksgiving dinners being held around town. In the meantime, the Culinary Capers special for November 27 at Sequoia Cafe (Guanghua Lu) is available as take out (3-6 PM) or sit down (6-10 PM) for RMB138 per person. This is the menu they provided:
- Wild greens with merlot poached pears, caramelized hazelnuts with maple apple cider dressing
- Oven roasted turkey with gravy
- Celery apple and onion stuffing
- Spiced cranberry chutney
- Chive and crème fraîche mashed potato
- Roast winter vegetables with brown butter and nutmeg
- Pumpkin pie with cinnamon whipped cream
