The Chubby Vegetarian Thanksgiving Cooking Class on Saturday, Nov. 3 in Memphis

(UPDATE: WINNERS! Commenters Ssummers and James C. Williams, you have a spot at our class -- see you next Saturday at 6! Show up and just let us know via FB message this week if you have any questions. Glad to see you then.)

We are so excited to be hosting Thanksgiving early this year -- and you're invited! Come learn how to make Acorn Squash Stuffed with Dried Apricots and Chanterelles Topped with Miracle Mushroom Gravy; try your hand at our famous-within-the-family Brussels Sprout Salad with Candied Pecans and Smoked Goat Cheese; make your own Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce from scratch; and bake a Sweet Potato Pie with a Rosemary Cookie Crust with us to finish the meal. We'll teach you how to make the TCV family favorites that our families request this time of year.

In addition to walking you through a few simple steps to a perfect vegetarian Thanksgiving, we'll discuss the wine selection for your new menu. Of course, you'll also get a taste of everything that we create at the class.

Please don't make a sad frozen tofu turkey for your guests this year. Make a fresh, seasonal meal that everyone will be talking about until next Thanksgiving rolls around. Join us, won't you.

The Chubby Vegetarian Thanksgiving Cooking Class
In Memphis at the Downtown Cooking School

Saturday, Nov. 3, 6-8 p.m

Cost: $35 per person

Click HERE to register for the Thanksgiving Dinner class with Justin Fox Burks and Amy Lawrence or call 901.255.2562.

*CONTEST: We are giving away one place in our class to two separate commenters in Memphis or the surrounding areas. Winners will be chosen at random; to be in the running, just tell us about their best or worst vegetarian Thanksgiving meal. We know how it goes; oysters in the dressing, obviously non-veg marshmallows covering up the sweet potatoes, and that giant bird staring at you all day long while you virtually starve to death. Or maybe you have a few tricks up your sleeve when it comes to sidestepping these conundrums? Either way, leave us a comment and tell us all about it.

We will pick our winners on Friday. We can't wait to hear from you and see you in our class in less than 2 weeks!
