Mother nature had a little moment there where she was giving us some warm weather. But finally today in Philadelphia we have some fall weather.  I am going to be doing a demo this Sunday, October 13th, 2013 from 3 to 6pm at William Sonoma, 200 South Broad St # M6 Philadelphia, PA 19102.  I will be preparing some delicious White Bean Chicken Chili, and don’t worry my vegetarian and vegan friends, I will be making one especially for you as well.  I hope you can join me.  I will also be showing you how to create some fun ways to serve the dish for friends and family.  We need all of the food crafting ideas now since the holidays are fast approaching. Below is the recipe for those of you that are not be able to attend.  I hope you give it a try. Enjoy!
