Video: Interview with TV Food host Julie Taboulie
By Ray Hanania
Julie Taboulie joins us for one of our first Video Podcast interviews to discuss her popular and successful TV Food show, “Cooking with Julie Taboulie.”
Julie, whose real name is Julie Ann Sageer, is Lebanese American Arab and her show features the recipes and dishes that she grew up with as a child, broadcast on Public Television.
The show has completed two seasons and is gearing up for a third season, with 13 episodes per season. It was launched in 2012.
Julie talks about her favorite recipes, her background and family life. She also talks about specialty recipes that are perfect for the Lenten Season as Christians celebrate Lent and the Easter holidays.
This EMMY® Nominated, Telly Award Winning and Communicator Award Winning Public Television program is the first, and only, cooking show series solely focusing upon and featuring Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisines airing in the United States. Proudly co-produced by Julie Taboulie Television and prestigiously presented and distributed by American Public Television on Public Television Stations nationwide and on Create® TV nationwide.
Julie Ann’s cooking is drawn from her long list of remarkable cooks in the family, along with their timeless and traditional recipes, techniques and tried true tips that have all been thankfully bestowed and ingrained into her and thus the food that she creates. She attributes the launching of “Lebanese Cuisine” as being inspired by the breathtaking landscape of her homeland and the graciousness and inspiring energy of her people, (along with her biggest inspiration being her Mother of course), in presenting this delightful cuisine to people alike from all walks of life. Her vivaciousness in the kitchen is as comparable to the refreshing, vibrant and flavorful food that she shares, all the while in a lively, light-hearted and entertaining culinary environment.
The video interview is 35 minutes long.
