Get Ready to Kick Off Feast Week

Celebrate all things Thanksgiving, beginning Nov. 16.

We look forward to Thanksgiving all year here at Food Network, and this year we're celebrating in the biggest way possible: with an entire week dedicated to feasting! We'll kick things off on Nov. 16 with Thanksgiving-themed days (Fried Friday, anyone?) on social and in our newsletters. And on Sunday, Nov. 18, we'll bring you Choose Your Side, a Facebook Live event filled with mouthwatering Thanksgiving recipes, easy-to-follow tips and more.

Choose Your Side begins at 10 a.m., with Food Network Kitchen's Vivian Chan going live on Facebook. She'll show you how to make all of turkey's favorite sidekicks in one sheet pan for minimal prep and very little cleanup — perfect for a small Thanksgiving gathering!

At 12 p.m., Bev Weidner, host of our new Facebook Watch series Pressure Point, will put her spin on a Thanksgiving potato side dish we've all come to love.

Two-time Chopped champion James Briscione will be live at 2 p.m. to show viewers how he reinvents the entire side dish game with his Thanksgiving Bacon Roulade. (You do not want to miss this!)

At 3:30 p.m., Alex Guarnaschelli will demonstrate a favorite Thanksgiving side dish that viewers can easily make at home.

Get expert tips from a famous Boston bakery 6 p.m. and learn how to make classic pull-apart rolls your family won't be able to resist.

A good meal always ends in dessert, and Dan Langan, host of Dan Can Bake It, has a special surprise: At 9 p.m., he'll top off the day with a giant cake that looks like a Thanksgiving side dish but is actually a sweet treat.

Check our on-air program guide to catch Thanksgiving-themed episodes of daytime favorites, including Girl Meets Farm, Giada's Holiday Handbook and the all-new-series Martina's Table. In primetime, watch Martha Stewart host the Macy's Thanksgiving Cake Spectacular and then stick around for the finale of Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge.

For more information, visit and join the feast using #ChooseYourSide.
