There may be a turkey, but there is also a wonderful array of vegetarian autumnal dishes (for the US Thanksgiving holiday, but good for any autumnal meal). The mushroom-farro pie looks especially good. I have several vegetarian friends, and am always looking for tasty vegetable-based foods for everyone.
It is probably on epicurious too, but I clicked thorugh to the gourmet.com site, which is still online.
I did read the article, (local colour and all) though I have very little interest in the great outdoors... Hardcore urbanite here.
