Chef Trevor Luke, director of culinary, is pictured with the Thanksgiving Meals To Go Package (whole turkey package, $121.95 online price; $141.95 phone order or in-person price).

With Thanksgiving less than a month away, fond memories of family and friends coupled with holiday staples of moist turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy take the spotlight.

Thanksgiving provides a wealth of positive experiences, but the holiday also tends to conjure up moments of anxiety as hosts plan for the stress and mess typically involved with preparing and coordinating a grand spread.
