Trisha Yearwood is teaming up with First Lady Jill Biden on Nov. 20 in a new Food Network special to usher in the holiday season. A White House Thanksgiving finds Yearwood in Washington, D.C. where she and the First Lady provide viewers with a rare glimpse at holiday entertaining at the White House.
In the special, Yearwood and Dr. Biden create a tablescape using flowers from the White House Kitchen Garden, make Yearwood’s favorite turkey gravy and Dr. Biden’s grandmother’s savory stuffing, enjoy an apple crisp created by the White House pastry chef (topped with the President’s favorite ice cream) and more. The two are joined by White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford, Chief Floral Designer Hedieh Ghaffarian, and Executive Pastry Chef Susan Morrison on the special.
“Food brings us together,” Yearwood notes. “I hope this special is a reminder to all of us about what we all have in common. Love one another.”
“Food is love – and gathering together this year for Thanksgiving is healing for our hearts,” adds Dr. Biden. “The family recipes passed down through the generations, the fun traditions that continue, and the meaningful blessings shared, all keep me filled with gratitude. It was fun opening up the White House to Food Network and learning cooking tips from Trisha and the White House chefs and florist, while sharing my own family recipes. I hope everyone watching comes away feeling that cooking a Thanksgiving meal is something anyone can do, but if you’re still nervous about making the gravy, like I am, you’re in good company!”
A White House Thanksgiving premieres Saturday, Nov. 20 at noon ET – the time Trisha’s Southern Kitchen cooking show normally airs.
Yearwood released her fourth cookbook, Trisha’s Kitchen: Easy Comfort Food for Friends and Family, in September.
