SDLiving Pre-Election Show.. Appetizers! by George Geary

It has been quite a very long election season! Tomorrow I will be doing my segment on SDLiving Live at 9am on Appetizers.. Plus a very quick drink. Please everyone VOTE. Prior to being old enough to vote I worked on state campaigns, when I was 13 years old. I loved the process. I knocked on doors.. In my 20s I got back on the trails and stood and registered people to vote. Many propositions were infringing on human rights... Everyone knows how much I travel. Since October 1st, I have been in 14 states, teaching, morning shows and book signing.. If I can vote you can too. I have not missed one election since my 18th birth!  

Try these.

Raspberry Prosecco Cooler

Bullock's Wilshire Tea Room Chicken Cantonese Salad

Honey Sriracha Wings with Dill Sauce

Over 120 countries.. But France is Special! SDLiving by George Geary

French Influence ~  SDLiving Also 

I have visited over 120 countries, But France is it! Over 20 years ago when I decided which country to focus on International Food Tours I decided on France. I had so much in common with the rich country of food history. One of my mentors and chefs was from the Alp region of France in Chamonix. I knew I needed to see and share.

For over 18 seasons I packed my bags and took small groups to the South of France. We lived in the former home of Julia Child. The past 5 seasons I have rented a 17th century villa, and this year Julia's former home is up for sale. An end of an era. I hosted about 150 in the home over the years.. We are in our final stages of booking 2016 dates as we only have 2 spots left and will not be adding a week. If you are interested, please email as soon as possible. .

I am so proud that I have 2 former tour goers coming back for yet another week in the South of France.  


Last week I created Tapas outside on the outdoor set. Here are the recipes. 

Sangria Blanca

Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

Cold Tomato Soup

White Bean Salad

I am back next week for National Cheesecake Day! July 30th.. 9am Live on SDLiving CW6.. Recipes here afterwards!
