The Times loves food. And it has been home to some of cooking’s most famous writers, including Craig Claiborne, Pierre Franey and, more recently, Mark Bittman.

In my house, cookbooks have taken a back seat to an offshoot of nytimes.com known as Cooking. It blends the best of The Times’s vast archive of recipes with the latest offerings from its current stable of cooks, like Julia Moskin, Florence Fabricant and David Tanis.

Many of those recipes also come from Sam Sifton, the editor in charge of all things food, who, among other things, has also been The Times’s restaurant critic.

In Cooking’s newsletter, Sam lays out practical cooking plans for the coming days along with completely unrelated viewing and reading tips.

This week Sam offered his readers in Canada what he called a “gigantic collection of Thanksgiving recipes” as well as a special collection of recipes tailored for the Canadian version of the holiday.

Mr. Sifton’s call to arms for the weekend is “turkeys for all: action de grâce.”
