I do not know. My daughter and I have been invited to her future in-laws for dinner and his mother knows of my passion for cooking and said she would buy everything for the dinner if I would plan and prepare, so very flatteringly I said yes. She is Danish and her son is Canadian so do not know what traditions they use. They do celebrate a TG day in Canada but do not think they do in Denmark.

In the kitchen, by one of the guys - I just think it makes more sense - gives me some last minute time to get everything else assembled, and stuff's not getting cold while everyone is sitting around the table watching the 'carver' do their work!

Carve in the kitchen here. Gives me a chance to remove the dark meat from the thighs and drumsticks....makes for a nice presentation too.

My dad would always bring out the lovely browned bird, just to show.

And then take it back into the kitchen to be cut up.

A tradition that I kinda like and follow.

norgeskog, sounds like you have the opportunity to begin new traditions. You'll have to tell us what you ended up doing.

Now that I am married...it seems like a bonding process for my father in law and myself to carve together in the kitchen.

My family has always carved the bird in kitchen, as do I. So does my DW's family.

Of course, we do a "Family Style" dinner once a week at work, and sometimes that's a Turkey dinner, with a carving station. Big Tom Turkey's, about 10 of them, get carved up during that night.

I carve it in the kitchen. I have also cooked them the day before.....carved it and then heated it up in the oven. This makes for a very more relaxed day in the kitchen.

Another reason I prefer to carve in the kitchen is the cooks always put aside our favorite pieces. :P

I've always thought the same thing, Barbara! I'm not sure if this makes us "normal" though!
