Thanksgiving Side Dishes with Cookbook Author Kim O'Donnel

What’s a Thanksgiving feast without a plethora of side dishes? In this demo/hands-on workshop, local cookbook author Kim O’Donnel is your guide for some of the perennial classics – Stuffing, Gravy, and Cranberry Sauce – as well as a few new twists on traditional ingredients – Rosemary-Roasted Cranberries with Wild Rice; DIY Cranberry Juice; and Sage Pesto with Delicata Squash. We'll talk tips and tricks for gearing up for the big day and how Thanksgiving is a wonderful opportunity to cook both seasonally and locally.
