Heads up foodies and aspiring gourmet cooks: We want your Thanksgiving feast photos. So before you dig in, dig out your camera, then upload your photos to our reader gallery or e-mail them to breakingnews@spokesman.com.

Here’s an early holiday gift from the Moscow Food Co-op.

It’s offering its popular recipe collection, “The Co-op Cookbook,” free on its Web site, www.moscowfood.coop.

The book was originally published in 2005, and includes recipes for 45 of the most popular salads, soups, spreads, entrees, breads and desserts from the co-op deli and bakery. Store employees wrote it to feed the demand for recipes from the co-op kitchen.

The co-op raised about $10,500 from the sale of the books; about 2,000 were sold.

The recipe book, offered as a pdf file, features a range of meat, vegetarian, vegan, and wheat-free recipes including some longtime favorites such as Bok Choy Salad, Tabouli, Santa Fe Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

The co-op is located at 121 E. Fifth St. in downtown Moscow, Idaho.

Pend d’Oreille barrel tasting

Round out your Thanksgiving holiday weekend with a stop at the holiday barrel and library reserve wine tasting at Pend d’Oreille Winery in Sandpoint.

The winery is fresh off wins at the Tri-Cities Wine Festival in early November. The 2007 Primitivo ($29) earned a bronze medal. The 2006 Meyer Reserve Cabernet ($36) won gold and the Bistro Rouge ($13) earned double gold medal honors.

The Bistro Rouge is now offered in 1.5-liter refillable magnums ($25 for the first bottle, $16 for refills) at the winery, 220 Cedar St.

The holiday barrel tasting is Friday and Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. There is a $10 tasting fee which is refundable toward purchases.

The winery’s Web site is at www.powine.com or call (208) 265-8545 for more details.

Before you dig in to that beautiful bronzed bird and the picture-perfect pies, snap a shot of the spread and send it to us.

We’ll post a slide show of the pictures we get so you can drool over the dishes served at holiday tables around the Inland Northwest.

Not having turkey? We’d still love to see what you ate.
