Lisa Schroeder on The Today Show

Thanksgiving pre-funk: Portland’s own first lady of comfort food Chef Lisa Schroeder of downtown mainstays Mother’s Bistro and Mama Mia Trattoria will appear on The Today Show on November 25th, the eve of Thanksgiving. In a true calorie-forward holiday spirit, Schroeder will promote her just-released book Mother’s Best (Taunton Press) by making warm apple crisp in front of 5.5 million or so NBC viewers during the 9am hour—all while Ann Curry prepares pear hazelnut crisp and Al Roker takes a stab at something called peach almond.

Schroeder will spend the entire holiday weekend in her native New York City, also appearing on QVC Sunday before heading back home for some Portland gigs, which include a book signing at Powell’s on Sunday December 6th, and a class dubbed Comfort Food 101 at Sur La Table on Wednesday the 16th.
