Notes

TV Tidbit: Here's one of my funniest stories! When we were taking photos of this recipe, we had a new kitchen assistant helping out. He didn’t speak much English and, when he overheard my director and producer say, "We’ll shoot Mr. Food tomorrow morning," he thought they were plotting my demise! When it was all cleared up, we all had a big laugh!
