Vegetable Literacy for Thanksgiving
Saturday, November 23

Any good host or hostess knows that sides are no mere backup singers to the giant, golden turkey on the Thanksgiving table. They're stars, too. But serving the perfect side dishes means dealing with vegetables, which can be a make-it-or-break-it situation with picky dinner guests. If there's anyone who knows how to turn"icky" greens into delicious sides, it's Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy and FnB chef Charleen Badman, fondly nicknamed "the vegetable whisperer." This Saturday, you can join both women at FnB restaurant in Scottsdale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a discussion about how to incorporate seasonal veggies into your Thanksgiving spread. There will also be a three-course lunch prepared by chef Badman and attendees will take home a copy of Madison's book from Changing Hands Bookstore. Tickets cost $75 a person and can be purchased online.
