With Thanksgiving about a week away, everyone who plans to cook is preparing ahead. Chef Samuelsson will join the crew on ABC's “The Chew” today to whip up some fantastic specialties for the upcoming occasion.
Lots of Thanksgiving on “The Chew”
For the past week and a half, “The Chew” has been dedicated to offering outstanding ideas for Thanksgiving. The holiday is about food, fun, family and giving thanks. These are all topics this crew knows well. People who plan to cook the holiday meal are turning to their favorite afternoon show to get some great ideas. Clinton showed some unusual items including a candle that smells like meat and potatoes. Mario is making a turkey tortellini pie that looks really terrific.
Carla prepared a sensational pumpkin souffle. Clinton presented some beautiful crafts with cranberries. Yesterday the crew showcased some down home specialties with Billy Ray Cyrus to add some southern charm to the holiday. Mama T, Daisy and Antoinette all returned to “The Chew” for another battle of the Iron Grandmas to determine the best stuffing recipe. Antoinette beat the stuffing out of the competition.
Now the heat is on in the kitchen. Thanksgiving is just a week away. Today the show will be offering some fool proof ideas for the big feast day. They are presenting easy recipes fans can whip up without fear. One Facebook fan wondered, “Love the show, can someone cook for me for the holidays from 'The Chew'?” That certainly sounds like a good option. In the absence of a chef from the show, fans can turn to these yummy recipes to impress their family and friends.
