  • And then we also have mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green bean casserole

  • For dessert, we have pumpkin pie and cheese cake

  • Oh, and croissants, I forgot

  • Croissants

  • But that's not a traditional thing

  • I think that's like your family

  • So for you it's KFC

  • Yeah, yeah, there you go

  • So, today we're going to make our own Thanksgiving meal (dinner)

  • We're not going for everything

  • We don't have six hours

  • And we're gonna change a little bit

  • We're not gonna use turkey, we're gonna use chicken

  • We're going to head into the kitchen and start the preparations

  • We're gonna start with the chicken first and then Pierre's gonna

  • I'm gonna help with the chicken

  • Like, how to prepare this at all

  • First step is to marinate the chicken (Alright)

  • We gotta prepare the sauce

  • First is the soy sauce

  • I can do this

  • Pro, one

  • But your hands are kinda shaking

  • I'm nervous, I'm so nervous, I don't know how to make food

  • Next is, the wine (the wine)

  • Next we have the sugar (Okay)

  • Are your sure we just want three, I mean

  • If you're eating this, I feel like we should at least put like

  • The whole bag

  • Pepper

  • It doesn't matter how good it tastes

  • It just has to look good (yeah)

  • And now, we're gonna pour it onto the kitchen

  • The kitchen? Alright

  • Chicken

  • Pour it onto the chicken

  • Hey, did you do that back and forth just so you could cut it?

  • To the right

  • Guys, this is going in anyway

  • This is, this is going in for sure

  • Evenly, spread it evenly

  • I'm so nervous

  • Yeah, just pour it down, yeah

  • You're doing great

  • And now we're gonna massage it

  • Wait, what?

  • Oh hey, she likes it

  • Now we're gonna cut the stuffing for inside the chicken

  • Yeah, this is lemon grass

  • Do you want it like

  • Thin slices

  • That's good

  • Like that thin?

  • Yeah, that's good

  • Preheating the oven

  • Okay

  • Alright Bertha, let's go, we're going for a walk now, let's go

  • Alright, Bertha, you're going inside the sauna now

  • Thank you for inviting me

  • Time team switch?

  • Okay, so next up is our mashed potatoes

  • Yes

  • Did you want me to make the mashed potatoes because I'm Irish?

  • No, but I'm sure (not racist)

  • No, not intentional, yup

  • Back to my natural job

  • We're gonna put the whole thing inside

  • Add a little bit of salt with water and then we'll cook it

  • We could always spill two spoons but we can go for four

  • Okay so now our potatoes are cooked and we're gonna strain it

  • So that we get all the water out

  • Ooh it looks so good

  • They smell so good oh my god

  • A little bit, just like

  • Just a little bit more

  • These two

  • Just eating away at our mashed potato

  • So mashed potato is done

  • Okay, we're all done here

  • How long did we take

  • Like six, or seven

  • We've been here for like days

  • I think more like two hours or so

  • About two hours (yeah, about two hours)

  • We've readied the chicken, mashed potatoes, pumpkin

  • Just for decoration

  • Now we're gonna head on into that room and let's talk about Thanksgiving

  • So, we're back here

  • Ta-da (Thanksgiving dinner)

  • A table full of food

  • Just to be clear, we made all this

  • All of it

  • This and this, homemade

  • All of it, even the coke, we made it

  • I prepared it

  • You know, actually, I'm a pescatarian

  • Oh yeah

  • So I can't have any of these

  • This is my only dish

  • You know what

  • It probably knows how to swim

  • So that's like fish (yeah)

  • But pescatarian means that you could eat

  • You can't eat meat unless it's seafood

  • Yeah

  • Or chicken

  • No

  • Yeah, you look up pescatarian

  • I'm just joking

  • You can just try the mashed potatoes

  • Oh, it's good (yeah?)

  • It's good

  • Do you want some gravy?

  • Yeah

  • Thanksgiving, do you guys usually come together the day before?

  • We have the main thing the day of

  • But like, for school, we're off

  • Yeah, work is closed usually on Thanksgiving Day as well

  • Okay

  • And this huge sale starting at midnight usually

  • The day of Thanksgiving

  • So it's a Thursday

  • It's called Black Friday

  • Right?

  • You just kinda really jumped to the......

  • Oh I'm sorry, yeah

  • Start over, start over, go, go

  • Start over

  • And so people usually like start lining up

  • Like they'll eat dinner or something maybe at like 3 in the afternoon

  • It's crazy what ends up happening

  • I've never been to it

  • So Thursday we have off for school and work

  • And then the following Friday

  • Thanksgiving is not on a specific date

  • It's on the third Thursday

  • So it changes every year

  • Yeah, it changes its date every year

  • So it's not like Halloween where it's like October 31st

  • Yeah, so it's always Thursday, Friday off and then

  • Long weekends, Saturday and Sunday

  • Alright Bertha

  • Time to try you

  • Ready to have you Bertha

  • How is Thanksgiving compared to

  • Say, Christmas

  • For my family

  • Well, Christmas in the States is a lot bigger

  • We'll have off like a month for Christmas and New Years

  • For my family in particular, specifically with the food

  • Usually we'll have a turkey and a ham

  • But pretty much everything else is the same

  • For Christmas though, you give presents

  • Yeah, more presents

  • And Christmas tree

  • Yes, and Christmas tree

  • If you missed a Thanksgiving, is that a big deal in the family?

  • Like with me being here,my family's always pretty sad that I'm not there

  • And for Thanksgiving, the main thing you do

  • Like a reason for it now is like you give thanks

  • Like, that's why it's called Thanksgiving

  • Thankful for and people usually go around and say what they are thankful for that year

  • Well at least with my mom

  • She'll go I'm thankful that all of you are here to celebrate with us

  • Don't cry

  • Except for Meaghan

  • What made that difference

  • Is it religious reasons?

  • No

  • Why is Christmas more

  • I think it's just because a lot more people get more time off

  • So everyone could be together

  • Yeah, it's more like the country

  • Thanksgiving, if you're not religious, what do you do when it's your time to go around giving thanks

  • Well Thanksgiving is not really a religious holiday

  • Oh, it's not?

  • No, Christmas is a religious holiday

  • Thanksgiving is the pilgrims from England

  • They travel to America to settle

  • They didn't know how to survive

  • And then the Indians taught them how to plant crops

  • And then after the harvest they had like a big meal to give thanks to the people who taught them

  • What we learned in school was Christopher Columbus in 1492 (No)

  • Isn't that that one?

  • No! No!

  • Am I just mixing stuff up (Yeah)

  • And then they're like, they're like

  • Oh, hey thank you oh

  • And the Native Americans were there giving them corn (He's a bad student)

  • Clearly a bad student

  • What do you guys like most about Thanksgiving

  • All the food

  • Yeah, the food

  • All the food

  • Well Thanksgiving is very food-focused

  • So usually after you eat you're just like

  • Everyone takes a nap

  • Food. Rest

  • Yeah, that's it

  • I think Thanksgiving is really different here in Taiwan

  • Yeah, how is it like here

  • It's more of a I think commercial thing now

  • Department stores, you know, they will open up shops with banner saying

  • Oh it's Thanksgiving sale

  • And a lot of Taiwanese they mistake Halloween with Thanksgiving

  • They kinda mixed them together because of the pumpkin, yeah

  • To wrap up, let's just talk about the food that we made

  • Not bad

  • I have to say we did pretty well

  • We did good (yeah)

  • Mashed potatoes' really good

  • Yeah, the mashed potatoes and the chicken is also really good

  • Yeah the chicken is really good, I did not taste it

  • It looks good

  • This actually took a little bit longer than I thought it would

  • This one

  • No, no, no, actually this one
