New York Times food editor and CCLA author Sam Sifton is a guest judge on Netflix’s newest cooking competition, The Final Table. All 10 episodes are available to stream now, and you can catch Sam on Episode 6, firmly but fairly judging as the contestants re-invent (what else?) Thanksgiving dinner.

Sam is the author of the definitive guide Thanksgiving: How to Cook it Well, along with the forthcoming SEE YOU ON SUNDAY!: A Cookbook for Family and Friends.
