Celebrity Chefs Share Their Most Clever Holiday Cooking Tips

Store Your Turkey Outside 

For me, the most common challenge I think home cooks face is the storage issue that comes along with prepping a large meal (especially when you have items like a large turkey). Where I live in the North East, the weather normally dips into the 30s at night during the holiday season. I like to sit my turkey in a brine overnight outside. It’s mother nature’s refrigerator! It opens up tons of space in the fridge to accommodate other ingredients.
