…By Shopping at Whole Foods Market November 13th!

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Whole Foods Market has selected Future Chefs to benefit from their Community Giving Day on November 13. For one day only, 5% of net sales will be donated to our scholarship fund to help provide students with books and materials for college.

YOU can make a significant impact on a local young person simply by shopping early for your holiday festivities. Every dollar counts.

To help get your list organized, we’ve constructed a shopping guide (available at WFM!) with suggestions of items that you can purchase for your Thanksgiving meal. If you’re not cooking, fret not ─ we’ve also included items you can take as host/hostess gifts, as well as non-perishables like home products and cookbooks that you can stock away for gift giving throughout the New Year.

Reasons to Shop on November 13th (other than Doing Good!):
• Meet Future Chefs supporter, Andy Husbands of Boston’s popular South End restaurant Tremont 647 and watch him demonstrate some Thanksgiving tricks to prepare for the holidays. **
• Enter to win a 10-pack of classes to Exhale Mind Body Spa, Battery Wharf.  **
Avoid the crowds by getting the bulk of your Thanksgiving shopping done early!

Staff Favorites to inspire you while you shop:

She serves it family style from one big dish: Turnip Gratin.    ▪  A holiday go-to side dish for LauraBrussels Sprout Slaw with Mustard Dressing and Maple Glazed Pecans.     Ann says that Flour’s Sticky Buns, “are one of the few things I actually make so you know they have to be good”.  ▪  One of Abbie’s childhood staples is Pimento Cheese. She admits, “it might not be healthy, but it’s so good!”   ▪  Aquila makes this Mac & Cheese recipe her own by using half whole milk, and half evaporated milk.   ▪  Baking is Erin’s specialty. This Gingerbread Cake with Cranberries is one of her favorites but she says she, “prefers to serve it with vanilla whipped cream in lieu of the chocolate ganache”.
