Whether you actually missed booking a flight home, or are just strategically saving the family drama for Christmas, a “Friendsgiving” might be just the ticket to get your turkey fix this month. And while potlucks might be easier, local chef Chassie Bell can help you host the whole shebang. Sign up for her special Friendsgiving cooking class November 5 in Encinitas. It includes a four-course meal with recipes and décor ideas to take home. And when your friends ask, “What can I bring?” WINE! And no family drama. Classes are $60 per person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
