It’s the What Ya Got Cookin' -Thanksgiving Edition, a beloved tradition here on Midday going all the way back to 2016.

Chef John Shields  is a chef and the proprietor, along with John Gilligan of the great  Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen at the BMA.  He is the author of several cookbooks, the latest of which is The New Chesapeake Kitchen.  Chef David Thomas  is executive chef and co-owner with his wife, Tonya, of the terrific modern day soul food restaurant, Ida B’s Table  They are both here in Studio A.

Coming up later in the show, back by popular demand, it’s Midday with My Mom, another Midday-Before-Turkey Day tradition. 

Tom's mom, Rosemary Hall, joins her son (on the line from Atlanta) with her motherly and authoritative musings on all things Thanksgiving, including her favorite traditions.
