The holidays are coming up soon and to help you prepare, we partnered with the staff at COOK to come up with a few suggestions on how you can eat local with our upcoming series, A Homegrown Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is less than a month away and it is hands down our favorite time of year! Philadelphia has such a bounty of local, delicious ingredients that can make your Thanksgiving dinner table shine.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll provide tips, tricks and recipes on how to have a locally sourced Thanksgiving. And, because we have such a great chef and restaurant community, we leaned on our chef friends like David Katz of Meme, Mitch Prensky of Supper, Rebecca Torpie of Wedge+Fig, Katie Cavuto Boyle of Healthy Bites, Ben Bynum of Warmdaddy’s and many more, to provide us with their favorite Thanksgiving recipes.

We’ll post a few recipes a week leading up to Thanksgiving, so check back often. We’ll also give you suggestions on where to find local ingredients for the dishes we suggest.
