Sample Turkey Day Sides for $10 at Akasha

By

While almost every sit-down restaurant in L.A. has something for you to eat in or take-out for Thanksgiving, Chef Akasha Richmond is previewing the sides from her to-go menu for just $10 on Saturday. This provides a cheap-ish chance to taste-test about eight different sides, most of which bear the names of local farms, from noon to 3 p.m. tomorrow at Akasha's bakery. If you really like what you've sampled, you can bring the dish to your family's celebration and call the neighbors to brag that you had Michael Jackson's former personal chef do some of the cooking for you this season. The planned selection for tomorrow's tasting is below.
