Originally from Central New York, Julie Ann Sageer has always had a special fondness for food, especially the unique yet deliciously distinctive Middle Eastern food that she grew up on. To quote Julie Ann “our food has always been a big part of my life, it’s a part of my heritage and who I am today.” As a young Lebanese girl growing up in the suburbs of Liverpool, Julie Ann knew early on that she was just a little different, as she was enjoying dishes like hummus, babaganoush, tabouli, falafel and grape leaves. In fact, so much so that she garnered the nickname “Julie Taboulie” from her family, in which they still love calling her to this day, except only now they’ve graduated to Miss Tabouli!
