Thanksgiving is just around the bend, and with it comes the influx of family, good food, and ... chaos. The pressure to get that turkey just right or having too many cooks in the kitchen at one time can make the  holidays  more than a little stressful. On this edition of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with three Kansas City chefs about their tips on maintaining calm in busy kitchens and how to avoid a full-blown culinary disaster.
