November is right around the corner, and as the weather is getting cooler, you might be thinking about warming up your kitchen with some new fall recipes. Michigan native Maureen Abood will join us to talk about what foods are seasonal right now and share some fall dishes for you to try at home. 

A few years ago, writer/photographer/chef Maureen Abood quit her job in Chicago and moved to San Francisco to follow her passion and attend culinary school.

In recent years, we’ve asked MSU corporate chef Kurt Kwiatkowski to whip up a new idea for your Thanksgiving table. Our premise is that it’s Thanksgiving morning, you have out all the stuff you’ve purchased for the meal, and you decide you want to do something different with it. Being a busy morning, and maybe your favorite grocery store isn’t open, you’re limited to what you have on hand.
