Revival of Classic Recipes

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

CookingTipsTV’s concept was born 20 years ago with the idea of showcasing classic recipes from around the world. Little did I realize, these recipes would still have “legs” after all these years. The fun part is that they’re more popular then ever!

In fact, some of the chef’s who are presenting in the videos, are now food ambassadors for their country. It’s no surprise. These talented individuals are passionate and knowledgeable about their indigenous foods and convey their message with pride.

I welcome you to view the videos and enjoy the recipes that are true classics.

Have a video of your classic recipe? Go ahead and upload and share!

 

Flash to HTML5 Video Conversion is Happening!

Monday, August 15th, 2011

It will be 20 years in 2012 when I first started working on the cooking around the world video project. It has been a series of incredible ups and downs and it looks like the final chapter of this series is happening soon.

My extremely talented webmaster has started converting the videos so they will play on Apple mobile devices. This is been a long road for both of us and the end is in sight! Since Apple, or more exactly, Steve Jobs, doesn’t like Adobe’s Flash software, converting videos to play on Apple mobile devices, on a small independent site, has been quite the chore. Flash plays on all devices except Apple mobile, so this conversion was necessary but a royal pain.

The good news is that he has cracked the code and all the videos will be live, soon!

I’ll keep you posted on the progress. Plus, the enhanced e-cookbook, Cooking Tips From Around the World, a Culinary Travel Adventure is also getting converted to additional formats to support mobile devices. Lots of great improvements are happening and I appreciate your visits to the site. Your suggestions are always welcome!

Epub3 here we come!

What were you thinking?

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

I get asked this all the time.

To make a long story short, I decided to travel the world solo filming culinary professionals teaching their classic indigenous cuisine with food items available worldwide. I previously worked with on-location crews filming shows for cable, am a devout foodie, was recently divorced and ready to have another adventure.

I started in New Zealand and shot their green lipped mussels, lamb and more very fresh seafood. I was amazed at the level of sophistication the chefs, restaurants and locals knew about food. Same with Australia. They take food very seriously and I was busy with several cooking schools both in the big cites and in the outback. Hong Kong and dim sum was the next stop. With it’s bustling traffic and people’s energy, became one of my favorite destinations in Asia. Singapore is a safe place for women traveling alone and since it’s located in a strategic position in the trading lanes of commerce, has a variety of indigenous cuisines. They all vary but have a nice spicy heat to make you sweat and offset the high heat and humidity.

Bali was supposed to be a resting place since I was on the road for several months and feeling pretty tired, but instead turned into a unique setting for their cuisine. Bangkok and the Cooking School at the Oriental, was amazing and the recipes are classic and delicious with great tips!

Britain became the next stop and I traveled through the countryside finding purveyors and culinary professionals teaching about traditional English fare. And then there was Italy, foodie heaven, and several special chefs and cooking schools teaching classic Italian recipes.

www.cookingtipstv.com hosts the videos and I recently published a companion multimedia enhanced e-cookbook, Cooking Tips From Around the World, A Culinary Travel Adventure, with more recipes, tips, photos, video links and travel tales from this adventure. There is a sample chapter available, free of charge, to download and get a taste of the e-cookbook.

Fennel is one of those veggies that people can overlook since they don’t have a clue how to fix it. Even if you know how to cook it, in this video Belinda Jeffreys from Australia, shows us what to look for in purchasing, trimming and preparing fennel. Plus fennel is healthy!
