Hey there! I just wanted to stop in and drop some flicks from recipe testing for the next 13 episodes of Cooking for Real. We've begun to compost in the Food Network kitchens and I thought for some reason the visual was interesting. Kinda like, what's in the bowl? These are remnants from two different days of cooking ... see how many things you can pick out...
Then, every time I head into the kitchens to do a bit of work, there's someone new to meet ... this time around it was Ian. He's currently a student at the C.I.A. and he's from New Hampshire. So, one of the first things I asked him was ... well what do you eat there? What is something people think of when they think of New Hampshire and food? I mean of course seafood, but what else? He said "Whoopie Pie". We all stood there in our kitchen station and almost instantly strongly suggested it would be a good idea for him to whip some up in his free time the next day. We are such foodie bullies! LOL. It was really a full court press from the team. We were like kids really, just the idea of a real homemade Whoopie Pie sounded so good!! So the next day, we waited for his assignment to be finished and then we dug in. Here he is next to his lil bites of heaven alongside Jenna.
I would've taken a better picture, but the reality is, we waited and watched these get put together, so when it was eating time ... I was droooooling!
That's it for now. I've got some great news and I've also got some more flicks to put up from the new shows we are currently taping. Until then, you've gotta take a look at this video. Its a profile on Wendy Waxman, she is a big part of the behind-the-scenes action at Food Network and if you enjoy inside looks, this is a winner.
