Thanksgiving Tips

Thanksgiving. Dinner. Do those words strike fear in your heart? If so, fear not, because Simple Gourmet in Redondo Beach is here to help!

Pomegranate-Lacquered Sweet Potatoes from Simple Gourmet

We had the honor of attending a cooking class at Simple Gourmet, where we learned all about tips and tricks to make Thanksgiving dinner prep easier. You can read all about their tips – and get one of our favorite Simple Gourmet recipes – at our sister site, the Jolly Tomato.

Don’t feel like cooking? You can order a Thankgiving meal to go from Simple Gourmet. $200 gets you a complete meal for 8 people ($25/person). You can pick it up from their Redondo Beach kitchen, or have it delivered for an additional charge.

Blogger disclosure, a.k.a. the fine print: I was treated to a cooking class at Simple Gourmet. I was not compensated for this post. The opinions expressed are my own.
