A new president, my newTV show and a new gourmet market.
By Judi Gallagher
You see, when you shoot many segments in one day, you need to be extremely organized. Every shoot day is like Thanksgiving. You must have double of each dish, so there is a finished product, and extra ingredients for when I stumble or spill. I am a bit of a hero on the cul de sac on these days, running between a few of our neighbors’ homes to pass out Glad containers with leftovers. The team from ABC gets a well-deserved sample but sometimes there is just so much.
Matt Orr hams it up.
Our election night “eat the cooking show leftovers” party proved to be a huge success. Matt Orr dove into one of two hams, while chef Jeremy Hammond Chambers and ad whiz Sam Stearn took a hearty liking to my Nana’s recipe for meatballs. Al Roach brought his political score card and immersed himself in ham, seafood pasta (thanks to chef Tom Harvey’s leftovers from the shoot) and pumpkin Napoleons in between marking the electoral map. Guess I will be scheduling another shoot for the inauguration- just no more ham and meatballs, please!
