You know Thanksgiving is near when the airwaves are punctuated with words like meyer lemons and green beens. Don’t worry, we’ve moved beyond Susan Stamberg’s cranberry relish recipe. Today, WBUR brings you two delicious segments. First on Here & Now at 12pm EST, resident chef Kathy Gunst discusses low-fat side dishes for your Thanksgiving table. Kathy answers listener questions and sheds some wisdom on protecting your waistline during the holidays.
Plus on Radio Boston at 3pm EST, we take you on a grand tour of the Boston Beer Company (the brewery behind Sam Adams) with founder Jim Koch. Jim Koch will also be in studio to talk about the evolution of Sam Adams and his partnership with Accion USA. Through this microlending effort, Koch hopes to help small food and beverage business owners in New England realize their own culinary (or brewing) dreams. Jim Koch will be taking your questions. Call in at 1-800-423-TALK or tweet or Facebook @radioboston or @pubradiokitchen.
All segments will also be available on the (free!) WBUR iPhone app.
