For the past year, due to my lack of a work permit in Canada, I have been volunteering at Access7 – the local cable co-op. I started doing floor directing for the show Talk of the Town and then moved on to my own short piece called City Sleuth, which features the cool & unusual here in Regina. Now, however, I am going to do a cooking show on Access, which should be a lot of fun! I’m thinking of doing a theme of “Everyday Gourmet”, wherein we take your everyday dinners & kick ‘em into high gear.
This is a clip of the piece I did as a test piece for the station, so obviously it is not ready for prime time, nor will it air as is. The ‘factoids’ are obviously made up – I have never even met Emeril Lagasse – and there are some editing errors such as the close up of the pork chop which is already seasoned, though I never seasoned the other side in the segment. So I would love to hear your comments, though please don’t point out the obvious editing snafus!
I would also love to hear what you think of the theme – would you prefer to watch a show about finding cool ingredients & cooking unusual dishes with them? I am also toying with doing some molecular gastronomy, which I find a lot of fun!
Let me know what you think in the comments and I also need a title for the show! Thanks in advance!
