Celebrity Chef and PBS Personality Julie Toboulie Comes to Cook in Binghamton

From Julie Taboulie:

“The Queen of Lebanese Cuisine” Julie Taboulie comes to cook at The Kitchen Store in Apalachin on Saturday, November 9th for live Lebanese Culinary Classes, bringing to life one of her “Cooking with Julie Taboulie” most popular PBS seasonal shows “Thanksgiving Traditions Take a Twist”. This Thanksgiving, traditions are taking a twist with Julie Taboulie’s Lebanese style spread of soup, stuffing, side, sweet and of course last but certainly not least, the main feast at the Thanksgiving table too! Two culinary classes will be offered, from noon to 2pm and 4pm to 6pm, with meet-n-greets immediately to follow each class with this Queen of Lebanese Cuisine herself! The classes will be conducted as live cooking demonstrations of the dishes and desserts as these Thanksgiving tasting courses and wines selections are served to the guests. Attendees will be presented with all-new delicious dish and dessert ideas to serve at their Thanksgiving table this year as Julie joyfully demonstrates how to prepare and share colorful, cultural dishes like “Jazar Sharba” a creamy carrot subtly spiced silky smooth soup, “Farjee” roasted Cornish hens stuffed with authentic Arabic rice and aromatics, “Ruz Bi Heswhi” an old world wild and long grain rice meat savory stuffing, “Sleet” a side dish of Middle Eastern mixed greens and grains, and “Tofaah bi Safarjal bi Knafe” a Lebanese American honey crisp apple and caramelized quince with cream crumble spooned with “Atar bi Mazahar,” Orange Blossom signature syrup.

These tasty three-courses will also be accompanied with wonderful wines from Julie’s hometown, the famous Finger Lakes Region, the area which also serves as the stunning setting for her hit show! Especially selected wines from Glenora Wine Cellars and Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars will be perfectly paired with each enticement to be enjoyed by attendees. Audience questions and interactions will be encouraged in this extremely engaging and entertaining environment. Guests will also receive the repertoire of recipes featured in the culinary classes to successfully recreate right at home!
