primary-image, l

This week on Table Talk, Kim O'Donnel is on tap for a full hour of meatless-eating conversation. The chat was right here on Thursday, January 28, at 10 a.m. PST, 1 p.m. ET, with your questions, suggestions, or links.

Kim, a trained chef and longtime food journalist, is writing a cookbook for people trying to eat less meat. Every week, she brings ideas, tips, and recipes to her weekly live chats. Join her here at Table Talk most Thursdays.
