How to Have a Very Tasty Philly Homegrown Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. If you’re cooking this year, you’re probably already sifting through mountains of cookbooks and holiday-themed magazines, searching for the perfect recipes to balance out your holiday table. Thanks to a little help from some area chefs and food-minded folks, we have a few more recipes to add to your consideration pile.

From the Root Vegetable Soup that Chef Ian Maroney is currently serving up at his Pumpkin Restaurant to the Honey-Lemon Glazed Turkey that Chef Kiong Banh makes for the staff at Twenty Manning Grill and Audrey Claire each year, there are plenty of options here to ensure that your Thanksgiving is both delicious and happily local.

As you map out your Thankgiving shopping, keep in mind spots like the Fair Food Farmstand at Reading Terminal Market and the Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market. The Headhouse Market will be open on Wednesday, November 24th from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., for all your last-minute, local shopping needs. For additional markets, make sure to check out the our Food Finder.
