Happy New Year to you all! As I embark on 2018 with a lot of bold goals in mind (including the revamp of this website) it occurred to me that many of you have no idea who I am or why I started this project in the first place. Feast in the Middle East at one point in my life was just an idea, and a risky one at that. Switching from my career as a journalist and TV host, to an online show focused on food was daunting to me. All I had was my background in television and an arsenal of amazing recipes. I had no idea where to start to bring those two worlds together. Starting with a small saved up investment, I decided to take on this journey, and now the show has taken on a life of its own, and brought rewards I never would have imagined. While I am no where near where I want to be in terms of YouTube subscribers, I acknowledge every subscriber as an additional global family member to help me propel this show forward with more ideas, recipes, and stories. Which direction would you like to see the show go in as we trail blaze in this new year? If you haven’t subscribed already to my channel (or this blog) please do, and let me know what kind of content you would like to see. Because unlike television, where I had bosses leading the way on content, I love the freedom to cover what I want, and tailor it to the needs of an interactive audience. Click below for my story, and hope to get your feedback in the coming year!
