Get geared up for the holidays in the latest issue of Macon Magazine.

We have great recipes to make planning your Thanksgiving easier. We even include an overview of the history of dressing in our holiday meal mix. And while we’re on the subject of food, we’ve got some guys you need to meet who really know their way around a kitchen, not to mention a barbecue pit. Not to be missed is Brad Evans’ story on how to go whole hog. The native of Vienna, home of the Big Pig Jig, can get you fired up with great advice on how to barbecue the perfect pig, and have a great time while you’re doing it. At the other end of the spectrum, Keith Fitzgerald takes you through the steps of de-boning a chicken to produce a mouth-watering French dish of mushroom- and spinach-stuffed chicken. We also have another story on a fowl subject, taking a look at the growing trend of raising chickens in your own backyard. If you are looking to take your food and wine experience on the road, Kathy Hoskins leads us on a tour of Virginia wine country, with great insights that are sure to lift your spirits-literally and physically. But our October-November issue isn’t all about food. In another holiday vein, we offer a gift guide packed with great ideas to help you navigate holiday shopping. And there’s a history lesson with a fascinating story about Jerry Cowles, the man Macon has forgotten.
