Thanksgiving is all about harvesting, whether it’s the fruits of your labor in the kitchen, gathering new or true friends around, or basking in the warmth of your family. Here are some ways to help with your kitchen harvest.

Williams-Sonoma is synonymous with great kitchen tools and equipment, which is why cooks and people who simply love food have headed there for more than five decades. With an autumn-theme serving set, and some primers from their complimentary weekly technique classes, you’ll be ready to celebrate with the people you love. Parents can head to a Williams-Sonoma in the city this month for free technique classes, including Let’s Talk Turkey (11/1), Stress-free Thanksgiving (11/8), Thanksgiving Desserts (11/15), Classic Thanksgiving Recipes (11/22), Holiday Samples & Gifts (11/29), and Hosting A Cookie Exchange (12/6). Consider Williams-Sonoma to be your kitchen away from home, and stop in to your closest store for the things you need, whether it’s a ladle, All-Clad roaster, Oak and Acorn Tureens, or technique tips that will render cooking easier and food more delicious;

You’ll want to pack up turkey sandwiches and sweet potatoes for school lunches, so check out the vintage lunchboxes at Awesome Avenue’s online store.
