Thanksgiving is almost here and there’s a special reunion happening again this year… the “Thanksgiving Grandma” Wanda Dench is about to spend her 8th Thanksgiving with Jamal Hinton, the young man she accidentally invited to dinner by texting what she thought was her grandson’s number back in 2016.
Their exchange went viral and that first gathering was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. This year, AirBnB will host their dinner on Monday and invite 2 new guests to join them. Wanda hopes their story will continue to inspire others to be open to new people and friendships. Netflix is producing a movie about their touching story.
Their Thanksgiving dinner is catered, but every year, somebody gets stuck in the kitchen and wishes theirs was, too!
Kendall College at National Louis University in Chicago is here to solve your kitchen struggles! They just launched the Yes Chef: Thanksgiving Help Line to answer your questions about everything from roasting your turkey right to cooking for guests with dietary restrictions.
You need to email them by the end of today to get them answered in time for your holiday meal at TASTE@nl.edu.
Happy Turkey Day!
