Join us on today’s program as we sit down with some of Utah’s finest foodies to talk about the fine dining scene here in Utah. This episode is the first installment of a new monthly series called “Food Tips From Foodies,” where we bring in a few of Utah’s best food critics, chefs, podcasters, and general food enthusiasts to talk about a topic related to our food scene.
Our guest today is Moudi Sbeity, co-owner of Laziz Foods.
Laziz is a local maker of Middle Eastern spreads like their popular hummus, muhammara, and toum garlic sauce that can be found in a variety of local grocery stores like Whole Foods and Liberty Heights Fresh.
On the show today, we’re joined by Amy Riolo — award-winning author, chef, TV personality, cuisine and culture expert, and educator who makes frequent appearances on television and radio programs in the United States and abroad, including Fox Television, CBS, The Travel Channel, Martha Stewart Living Radio, WHYY, and now… the popular podcast that is The Utah Foodie.
In early 2014, James Fowler introduced Sugar House Distillery and became Utah’s very first “grain-to-glass” small-batch spirits distillery — where the entire production, from the raw ingredients all the way to the bottle, is done in-house using their own still. And it all happens in their warehouse in South Salt Lake that just so happens to be South Salt Lake’s first privately-owned liquor store since prohibition.
