series asking some of our favorite San Francisco food people about the
dish they just can't celebrate Thanksgiving without.
Tablehopper editor Marcia Gagliardi spends her days and nights roaming the city, chatting up restaurateurs and tasting all there is to be tasted. But when it comes to this holiday, she's a homer.
Gagliardi: Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I'm so lucky because my parents are in San Mateo and my sister lives a block and a half from me. Thanksgiving is always an intimate family gathering at my mom's. We usually bring an orphan with us, an adopted diner or two. We hang out during the day, drinking wine and cooking. I was talking to my grandmother last year, and she said, “Your mother is such a good cook! These are the best Thanksgivings I've ever eaten.”
