New traditions for Thanksgiving sides

AMHERST – As we approach the holiday season, are you already starting to think about creating a memorable meal? Join Liz Barbour at the Amherst Town Library on Nov. 20 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for a discussion and cooking demonstration.

For many of us, preparing Thanksgiving dinner can be filled with anxiety. Join Chef Liz Barbour as she explores the many types of turkeys available, the various ways to prepare them, and how to create a menu that is easy and delicious. Following her discussion, Liz will demonstrate two of her favorite side dishes and offer samples for everyone.

Liz Barbour has been cooking professionally in the Boston area since 1992 and started The Creative Feast in 2004. Liz’s cooking demonstrations and recipes have been featured on New Hampshire Chronicle, Channel 9“s “Cook’s Corner,” and in various publications including New Hampshire Magazine. In 2017, Liz published her first cookbook, Beautifully Delicious: Cooking with Herbs & Edible Flowers.
