$25,000 AND Amazing Comfort Food??!

by in View All Posts, January 2nd, 2009

It’s hard to think of a better combo…

This Sunday, Ultimate Recipe Showdown returns — bigger and tastier than ever. Four contestants will be competing for a pretty big bowl of green — $25,000. [Plus, some serious bragging rights.]

Here’s the best part… In the first episode, they are making their signature comfort foods. I don’t know about you but that’s pretty much all I want on a long, lazy weekend like the one. It appears the challengers will be whipping up a variety of comforting cuisine, including a truly decadent mac and cheese.

Here’s the $25,000 question:
If you were battling for a big bag of money, which comfort food specialty would you serve up to win it all?

Sunday Sauce to Turkey Mole

by in View All Posts, December 11th, 2008

Operation Foodie here, with an insider look at production — on set at the Food Network Studios.

Just as recipes range from second-nature to baker-perfection, so does food television production. The dependents upon what make it a cinch vs. the need for more elbow grease vary… Shows like 30 Minute Meals are well-oiled machines that literally take about 30 minutes to shoot. The crew is small, Rachael is very low maintenance, the set practically builds itself, and the days fly by. These are what I consider the “Sunday Sauce” shows: consistently good and something the whole family finds comfort in.

Others take more managing, prep, and creative organizing. I call these the intricate “Turkey Mole” shows. The ingredients are particular, measurements precise, timing is specific, and attention to detail is immense.  Our “Turkey Mole” shows range from the new, like Guy Off The Hook, to the veterans, like Iron Chef America. Crew sizes are much larger and there are a million things on the stove at once (literally and figuratively).

Guy Off The Hook was my first show in larger Studio A, and I recall how much prep work was required just catering for the audience.  I was amazed at how much our team genuinely cared about the experience each guest would take home. From the moment Guy walked on the stage to wild cheers, I knew we’d achieved much more than we had hoped for.

That’s all for now! Back up to the studio to check in the crew for Tyler’s Ultimate!
