Episode notes

Episode Summary:  

Happy Thanksgiving all you wonderful people. Chef Seth Brundle joins Tre’vell and Jarrett for a HEATED convo about the best and less-than-best Thanksgiving side dishes. Friendships are tested, trust is broken, but there is one thing they can all agree on: Thanksgiving is not the time to experiment with new recipes. Period! Don’t listen to this episode on an empty stomach cause Chef Brundle describes how he cooked a turkey three ways, his black truffle mac & cheese, grandma’s dressing, okra stew, and more. Plus, Tre’Vell reveals the one dish you should never, ever serve if you invite them to your Thanksgiving . . . or any holiday.

About the show

Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
