Lights! Camera! Action! Where’s he’s gone? Just finished filming my first 6 part series for Simply Good Food TV and thought I’d post a couple of behind the scenes pictures to sneak a look at!
It was a great couple of days; exhilirating, knackering and a whole lot of fun! I was a little nervous beforehand; which I always get and was the same when I was filming with Lisa Faulkner for the Food Network earlier this year – click here for that episode. But after a few minutes in front of the cameras you relax and it all starts to go much more fluid.
We had a great crew who kept it all moving along and managed to put up with my crap jokes for a few days without walking out (special thanks to Sam, Sarah and Joe). Peter Sidwell was great at keeping me in line and directing me (read: telling me when to shutup) 🙂 and of course Robert for all his help.
We filmed our series in the Laranza kitchens (and these are seriously beautiful bits of kit). Tony and Glyn were very generous at letting us run wild in their showroom and was great to meet their lovely families as well.
We managed to bust out some really delicious recipes and had a nice big sit down lunch with everyone at the end of each day so we could all scoff the food I’d been cooking.
We filmed 6 episodes/recipes and these are being edited as I write this blog post so hopefully transmission dates will be in the next couple of months – watch this space!
