Today's first course?

Dunkin’ Donuts is stepping up their game with home delivery. The coffee chain is just the latest of many to introduce delivery, following the example set by Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell. But Dunkin’ Donuts isn’t stopping there. They have also introduced their own mobile order app at 124 locations. Using the app, customers can order ahead of time and pick up on-the-go.

And former Subway spokesman, Jared Fogle, has received a sentence of 15 years and eight months for sex charges brought against him earlier this year. Fogle has been charged with viewing child pornography, as well as engaging in paid sex acts with minors. The sandwich chain immediately severed ties with Fogle when the charges came to light, however later news indicates that one Subway franchisee had attempted to warn corporate several times and the company took no action.

The restaurant known as Dirty French in New York City is adding a little whimsy to their staff uniforms. All servers are now required to wear Air Jordan sneakers! The culinary hotspot has an ‘80s vibe and even lets the staff keep their signature kicks after being with the company for a year. Michael Jordan himself visited the restaurant proclaiming that he loved the food, but the shoes were his favorite part of the evening.

That's today's Daily Dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.

For those who like to try new recipes at Thanksgiving, let Clay Dunn and Zach Patton be your guides. They're the couple behind the food blog, The Bitten Word, and every year before the holiday, they scan 10 leading food magazines to identify recipe trends. Then they try out about 20 of the most intriguing recipes for a pre-Thanksgiving meal with friends, called Fakesgiving.

All Things Considered's Audie Cornish was a guest at their Fakesgiving in October. She invited Dunn and Patton into the studio to find out which dishes they deemed the hits and the ones they thought were duds.

Here's a selection of some of Dunn and Patton's top picks for 2015.

Porchetta-Style Roast Turkey Breast from Bon Appetit. "It's a turkey wrapped in delicious bacon. It has a paste of bacon and herbs on the inside, as it's wrapped and rolled," says Dunn.

Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Gastrique from Cooking Light. Says Dunn: "It's indicative of a larger trend in side dishes we see at the Thanksgiving table this year, which is inclusion of vinegar."

  • Ancient grains are "a really big trend that we see throughout the 10 food magazines we look at recipes from," says Patton. This year, the recipes "treated the grains in really unusual ways. The barley might be smoked or the rye berries might be pickled." They chose a Shaved Apple and Fennel Salad with Crunchy Spelt from Cooking Light. The spelt "almost takes on the consistency of unpopped popcorn." Overall, Patton says, it was a "refreshing salad, side dish with this great crunch from the fried spelt."
    from Food & Wine. "This actually reflects a really big trend we saw, which is this real focus on citrus flavors and tropical fruit flavors, which again is really not something that is typical for the Thanksgiving table," says Patton. "It is this really dense cake that is really brightened by the flavors of grapefruit and then you pour over a sugar poppyseed glaze. It really reminded me of the flavors of a lemon poppyseed muffin."
    from the Food Network. "It's more cheese than green beans, it's covered with homemade Dorito topping that you bake, it is a cheese bomb," says Dunn.
