The Latest Post
Folks, it’s horn tootin’ time. I’M IN A VIDEO!!
I was chuffed when the very lovely Bridget Davis, The Internet Chef, asked me to feature in the pilot episode of her new online series, Chef vs – a take on the wonderful world of food from the eyes of chef.
The series will feature Bridget challenging her food guests to share their story before they head into the kitchen to cook a fabulous dish.
This episode is Chef vs Vegetarian and to start, Bridget and I sat down and she asked me a few questions about my journey to vegetarianism. Then we headed into the kitchen to whip up my easy go-to dish – a super easy warm salad.
The video features two of my recipes:
Check it out folks, I’d love to know what you think.
Behind the scenes
During the interview it was a challenge to juggle sitting naturally with good posture, keeping eye contact with Bridget, being aware of the cameras staring at me, not speaking too fast and trying to eloquently answer all the questions, without stuffing up.
The cooking shoot was really interesting as some the processes had to be shot up close which meant pausing and waiting for cameraman to get into place. Bridget’s cooking studio gets quite warm so add to that bright lights, a boiling pot and a hot stove – I really felt for those who do that kind of thing for a living!
I must admit, I was pretty nervous about how it would turn out. Would I look awful? Did I say something silly? And most importantly, will the world see me a little sweaty?! I needn’t have worried – I think it’s really fun and cute and I’m so pleased with the outcome. PHEW!
A massive thank you to Bridget and Simon for producing such a slick video. It looks like the start of a really interesting series and I’m so proud to be a part of it. Make sure you subscribe to Bridget’s YouTube channel to see more episodes!
The experience has made me think more about videos. It’s a space I’ve not been in but maybe I should be? You never know folks, watch this space.
Hit me up with a comment and let me know what you think!
