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!

When I Met Julia Child

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Back in the 90s, I was researching a project I dreamed up – filming cooking schools around the world – and when I saw that Julia was appearing at Macy’s and signing books, I thought: ask her what she thinks. After all, I’m spending a life savings to travel solo around the world filming cooking schools teaching their indigenous cuisine. I wanted some feed-back.

Her cooking demo was preparing: Chicken Breast en Piperade, Braised in Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes and Herbs. The sizzle and aroma was amazing and her sense of humor enchanted the audience.

But I was on a mission and nervously waited till she sat at the signing platform and started signing books. It seemed like forever but finally it was my turn in line. When an assistant, Lenada Merrick, asked what I want signed in the book, I requested: To Fellow Leo. When Julia heard this she smirked and I realized it was my time to ask her about my project.

As we know, Julia was 6’2 and bigger than life. When I started telling her about my idea, she listened. When I finished, she stood up and threw her arms up and said: “This is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time!” Standing on that 2 ft high platform with her arms extended, I had a religious experience. She liked my idea!

She went on and created her Master Chefs series and I eventually fulfilled my dream and traveled the world solo filming talented teachers and chefs. I still feel lucky to have had her affirmation.
