Live with Lori: cooking show fast becoming standard fare for top Florida lawmakers
Future Senate President: Latvala to appear
On Thursday, November 14, 2012 at 3:00 p.m., “Live with Lori,” the breakaway hit political cooking show that viewers are calling, “a delicious look under the lid of Florida politics,” will host future Florida Senate President Jack Latvala (R-Clearwater).Members of the press are invited to the taping of this show. There will be a lunch and an opportunity to speak with Host Lori Halbert and her guest in an informal setting before the taping begins.
The weekly show, which debuted in more than 6 million homes across Florida on the popular Sun Sports Network, a Fox Sports affiliate, on October 4 of this year is fast becoming the talk of state political circles and offers viewers a chance to hear from some of Florida’s most influential movers, shakers and policy makers as they cook up some gourmet favorite dishes.
Show host Lori Halbert has called her breakaway sensation, Live with Lori, a cross between a Political News show and a Traditional Cooking show, but viewers across the sunshine state and their elected lawmakers are taking notice as the popular network dishes out an insider’s look at politics along side of some creative and mouthwatering recipes.
“This is not a show to promote any specific beliefs or agendas. This show is really about interviewing elected officials in a fun and non-threatening environment so that our viewers can get to know them as the ‘people’ they are, not the sound bites in 30 second ads,” Halbert said. “It is a non-partisan show that will allow the public to come to their own conclusions about their elected officials, and to have a little fun learning a new recipe, and just maybe come away with a new flavor for politics and policy.”
Host Lori Halbert, herself a former Indialantic town council member who leaped into state politics for the first time to run for the Florida House in 2010, has brilliantly mixed her two passions in what viewers and lawmakers are calling “a surprising, yet savory way,” and she hope the show makes public policy a little more palatable to Floridians across the state and across partisan lines.
“I am very passionate about cooking, and there is something very personal about preparing and sharing a meal with someone,” Halbert said. “This show is about personalizing important issues and having some of Florida’s most respected leaders round out our first season has really given us a chance to do just that, and the response from viewers has been overwhelming.”
“This is an exciting opportunity,” Florida Sen. Latvala said. “I have been hearing about ‘Live with Lori’ around the state, and its comfortable atmosphere and casual structure give me, and other lawmakers, a real chance to connect with our constituents. Besides, it will be fun to learn to make a little pork with Buttermilk Rosotto.”
