Tonight, I attended the Fresh Fork Market first Thanksgiving Dinner and cooking class. I had a great time. I got to spend time with friends of Fresh Fork that I don’t see often.
This was mainly a dinner event, with occasional demos and commentary from Chefs Adam and Parker. It was served family style with about 70 people in attendance. The dishes just kept coming. We had turkey, cabbage, corn, sweet potato hash, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, 2 types of stuffing, gravy, greens, 4 different desserts including fresh whipped cream. Whew! I don’t even know if I remembered everything.
The lighting wasn’t very good for photos, but I managed to snap a few. Here’s Trevor (head of Fresh Fork) and Parker (Fresh Fork’s chef in residence).
I didn’t get a photo of Chef Adam, but we enjoyed his discussion about turkey and his bacon panna cotta. It was an outstanding dessert! No Fresh Fork Thanksgiving would be complete without pie from Humble Pie Bakery. Diane talked to us about pies for a few minutes. One of the best parts of the night was that the chefs were available for questions.
If you haven’t had fresh whipped cream, you are missing out. It was a great compliment to the apple, pumpkin, and confetti pie or on its own.
I surely won’t be hungry at breakfast. Everything was great and I hope they repeat the event next year. For the first time, I am going to be making Thanksgiving dinner with my mom. I can’t wait to introduce our family to a couple of new recipes.
