Digestifs, Crack Pies

* Whether you overdid it at Thanksgiving or you’ve had enough of Aunt Carol, a digestif might be just what you’re looking for. Thought to aid digestion (not to mention making your aunt’s questions about why you’re still not married more tolerable), digestifs like grappa, brandy, sherry, limoncello, ouzo, tequila and even whiskey are purported to help your body ease things along and help you prepare for the traditional Thanksgiving Nap. * Ever wondered how a $44 pie tastes? David Chang, the man behind the justifiably awesome Momofuku restaurants in NYC is there to help. Chang and his partner Christina Tosi at Momofuku Milk are making some of their creations available around the country. Just go to momofukustore.com to order one of their famous “Crack Pies” (toasted oat crust, gooey butter filling) or Cinnamon Bun pies for the holidays and they’ll overnight them to you. Might be just the gift for the foodie on your list.
