Market Report

Hosted by

Evan Kleiman talks to Santa Monica Farmers' Market manager Laura Avery about the busiest market day of the year, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. All of the farmers will be at the market the day before Thanksgiving and will bring all of their best seasonal produce. One highlight is the six of seven varieties of yams and sweet potatoes at the Hmong farmers' stands.

Roxana Jullapat is the pastry chef and co-owner of Cooks County on Beverly Boulevard. She recommends taking a simple no-stress approach to Thanksgiving dessert this year. She suggests making a pear charlotte, which is essentially a pan lined with bread that's brushed with butter and sugar, then layered with roasted pears. It's comforting, easy to make and just plain delicious. You'll find the recipe on the Good Food blog.
