Friendsgiving by Bumble BFF & The Great American Turkey Co

In a hidden corner of Lower Manhattan, Bumble BFF and The Great American Turkey Company with special guest FreshDirect, hosted a mouthwatering Friendsgiving with an exclusive group of influential food and lifestyle Instagram bloggers benefitting WholesomeWave.

The Great American Turkey Co. invited New York City’s most influential foodie and lifestyle bloggers to gather in celebration of what they are most thankful for––an unforgettable dining experience with their friends.



Guests had plenty of opportunities to share the moment with their audiences of over 2.25 million food enthusiasts.


In honor of the holiday, the event was hosted in support of the Wholesome Wave Foundation, which empowers consumers to make better food choices by increasing affordable access to healthy options. In this case, those healthy options included recipes the likes of which no Thanksgiving has ever seen.

There were Spicy Masala Turkey Strips stir-fried over a quinoa salad and Smoky & Sweet Chili Turkey Cutlets served on a bed of arugula!

Four-time James Beard Foundation Award winning chef, Michel Nischan, demonstrated a city-apartment-style Thanksgiving done right…serving a main course featuring The Great American Turkey Co.’s delicious cutlets and sausages.

Unlike traditionally-drab turkey meals, Michel’s recipes featured The Great American Turkey Company’s lean turkey steaks and strips in chef driven, craft, marinades; and indulgently flavored sausages that are lower in fat and calories than pork or beef options.



Best of all, The Great American Turkey Company’s delicious turkey products aren’t just for the health-conscious - they taste great! The turkey is humanely and sustainably raised with a 100% vegetarian-fed diet. No added hormones or antibiotics ever. And to top it all off, it they come prepared in pan-ready portions.

After the customary moment of photography (they’re all Insta-foodies here) the guests gobbled everything up in one fowl swoop. All in all, the meal was a peckin’ success.

This Friendsgiving event revealed a way to cook healthy turkey-based dishes that are fast, easy, and ridiculously delicious.

If you wish you could say that about your Thanksgiving turkey…today’s the day.
