Food obsessed does not quite cover Juliana's relationship with the edible. Juliana lives, eats and breathes good food. Its part of her culture, its a passion, it's how she navigates through life.

Grow your own is something we Ugandans do without thinking. We love food, and luckily we are good at growing the stuff, maybe it’s because we have such a deep infinity with the land. Land is precious to us, passed down from generation to generation; it’s our Ugandan family heirloom. As we love eating and are good at growing you can safely say we are good at cooking.
We have invited extreme foodie Julianna Yazbek to come and have go at cooking and eating Uganda style. What is that you say??? Well follow Julianna on her culinary journey and you too can find out exactly what Ugandan style food is as Julianna delves into our Family Talenga clan cook book with Mama Joy Bafumba – aka our mum as her guide.
Armed with stash of Ugandan family recipes Julianna Yazbeck will combine it with her Lebanese heritage to create the Mother of all cultural fusions UGANG-BANESE. Excited ? I am, Hungry – well my mouth is watering.
