 Well, get your head out of the sand.  Donald Trump hosted Saturday night live on November 7, and NBC has granted “equal time” requests to four other GOP candidates.  No, they won’t be hosting SNL, but they will get prime time access to air their messages to voters.

 On KRUU’S Great Taste we provided a platform for Democratic senatorial candidate Tom Fiegen to communicate his views on family farms, GMO’s, climate change, and sustainable agriculture, and Rob Hogg, another Democrat running in the spring primary asked and presented his thoughts on the same issues.  This week, Iowa Senator Charles Grassley also weighs in on the same topics.

A Great Taste Thanksgiving-REBROADCAST

Reminder: This show is a reTurkey in the Dockbroadcast so we won't be serving a meal in the studio!  All links in the blog post are up-to-date.

The show this week features a look at the wide variety of dishes that can make up a modern  Thanksgiving table.  We have guests galore starting off the hour with Jeanne Sauvage, author of The Art of Gluten-Free Baking blog.  Jeanne has been baking gluten-free for over 10 years, and will help you make a gluten-free dressing for the turkey and simplify the art of preparing a pan gravy. 

How about a raw foods holiday banquet?  Joining us again from the already snowbound state of Minnesota is Susan Powers, creator of rawmazing.com, and author of Rawmazing Desserts and Rawmazing Holidays 2010.  Susan's ever-evolving raw food philosophy might surprise you.

Elif BatumanMusa Dagdeviren/TurkeyGREAT TASTE will journey all over the world on our next show.
