Lights... Camera... Action!

Amazing what following your passion can do! As a result of my Chicago Cookers & Bakers group and this lil ol' food blog of mine, I've been given an awesome tv opportunity. I will be a reoccuring guest speaker for the food & cooking segment of a local Asian news broadcast.
The Asian news broadcast will be on CPRTV (Chicago Philippine Reports TV) and is through VIA TIMES, a monthly publication distributed in the Chicagoland area’s Filipino/Asian American market. Via Times is considered to be one of the largest ethnic publications of its kind in the country with a more managed circulation program in key cities in the U.S., Canada and the Philippines.

The Chicago Philippine Reports TV is Via Times’ sister company in broadcast. Founded in 1990, CPRTV is the oldest surviving Filipino programming and carries a magazine format kind of television show…. interviews, news (international & local), personality features, showbiz, cultural shows, religious, cooking, dancing, singing portions.

Starting Sunday, June 17th, you can find me working with Sarah Lee, the hostess of Celebr-EAT-y Circle. Sarah shares her love of cooking and baking with her audience every week, featuring guest speakers to talk about their connection to all things delicious.

This Sunday, June 17th, I will be joining Sarah to share a summer recipe of Cilantro Turkey Burgers and the versatility of the recipe for meatballs, meatloaf, etc.

Next Sunday, June 24th, I will be joining Sarah and another guest to talk about Riesling wines. I'll also be promoting my new Wine & Dine Sessions offered through my Chicago Cookers & Bakers group.

So stay tuned and perhaps try catching the show! It will air this Sunday, 6/17 (as it does every Sunday) from 12:00noon to 2:00pm - and the cooking segments at 1pm on:
- UHF Channel 48, WFBT-TV Chicago
- Comcast Cable Channel 248
- RCN Cable Channel 175
- Broadcast Channel 33 in Rockford, IL
- Channel 26.3 Digital (available 7/1/07)
