no NBA game, but 5 recipes prepared by the editor

Batten the hatches, pull back the curtain, sing Christmas, then realize it’s actually Thanksgiving: tonight, the NBA goes silent. A great opportunity for the editorial staff to create five recipes for you to gather and then enjoy with your family, to celebrate the history of Zitazounis as if you were there.

But TrashTalk, what is Thanksgiving? Since the time of the Evangelical Pilgrim Fathers, Thanksgiving has been a way for Americans to thank God for the providential quality of the New World and for the good understanding of the native populations. Well, so says Wikipedia. We’re just saying it’s a great opportunity to fill your belly and have a good time with your family. Thanksgiving night rhymes with “truce” in the NBA: 24 teams played last night, no one is going to the coal tonight. You need to take a breather every now and then.

Recipe n°1: turkey with chestnuts


  • 100g minced beef
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 kg of chestnuts in jars
  • 3 kg of turkey
  • 1 half jar of honey
  • 100g butter
  • 1 half teaspoon of coarse salt
  • 300 g fresh cream
  • 1 handful of parsley
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • A background of cognac, settled rum or beer, if also grandmother’s liver fragile than D-Rose

A great classic of American “gastronomy”, turkey with chestnuts is a bit like Jaylen Brown: simple, effective, no spangles but very tasty. A staple of the Thanksgiving meal. The kind of safe bet your grandmother would give you until her death – in fear of changing a habit that would win and make the whole family happy. The process? Buy a turkey at the nearest market, brush it with butter with a pastry brush. In a separate bowl, mix 100 grams of minced beef with 300 grams of fresh cream. Slice 2 chopped shallots, spread the result in a bowl, crack an egg, also pour the egg yolk into the bowl. You will not serve as white. Finally, drop the semi-salted butter in the bowl and mix everything. Once this marooned mixture is obtained, heat it on low flame for two hours. This step is useful for pre-cooking turkey fodder. The browned mixture is placed inside the raw turkey, and the whole (turkey + fodder) is placed in the oven at 210°C for two hours. On one side, put thirty or more chestnuts in a pan and heat them in a cognac base. It’s almost done, all you have to do is sprinkle parsley over the final mixture. Enjoy your lunch!

Recipe n°2: truffled salmon burger


  • A giant salmon from the lakes of Iceland
  • 25g truffles
  • 50g butter
  • bread bread
  • Slices of cheddar cheese
  • A bottle of dry white
  • 100 g chopped steak
  • Blackberry ketchup

At first sight, fish/meat mixture looks disgusting. But just reading the paper, did you think the Jazz were 4th in the Western Conference after a month of competition? No, so thinly slice your salmon, rub it with a few pieces of truffle for flavor, and lightly butter it. Toast the bun parallel with a slice of cheddar cheese on each half. Cook ground beef to your liking (rare recommended), and gather everything between two slices of bread. White wine will be used to appreciate the fish.

Recipe n°4: the Gatorade galette


  • Puff pastry (2)
  • 125g of sugar
  • 60g soft butter
  • 2 egg
  • 150 grams of ground almonds
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 tbsp. rum
  • 1 egg to brown the galette with 1 pinch of salt
  • 50g pastry cream
  • 500ml Cool Blue Gatorade

We know that some people have a hard time living without LeBron James. If unable to spend the night with the king, they can taste this galette des rois with Gatorade. The frangipane recipe is one of the most classic, not easy to make, with this last minute addition as a surprise from the editorial staff: 500ml Gatorade “Cool Blue” pour into salad bowl. It is possible that the result is not the color expected for a classic frangipane cake. It is also possible that it is disgusting.

Recipe n°5: horsefly-pering


  • a gadfly
  • 2g butter
  • 1 g of honey
  • A quarter slice of bread
  • A glass of rum at 90°
  • A nearby phone
  • A lot of curiosity

A tricky word that the bravest will follow to try their hand at tasting the gadfly, this little insect that spends its time pissing off horses. Without fuss, after 10 minutes of cooking at 180°C (the temperature is not too high so that it does not disappear), with a drizzle of honey, a butter base and between two small pieces of sandwich bread… it is playable. However, it is strongly recommended to hit a dry ass of rum at 90° first, and type 15 into a phone ready just in case“melting incident”. Do not forget that the gadfly is a small stinging dog like a panda that eats bamboo, and even when dead its sting remains active. So, if you feel severe pain and the localized inflammation starts at the back of the throat (in other words, a big red spot forms there), do not wait for the night to pass and do not take medicine without consultation. a professional. It’s not good to mix anti-inflammatories with rum, and we don’t want to have an email from your lawyer at 11:39 pm tonight.
