My first episode is finally filmed and in the process of being edited. My hope is that I can finally get it posted tomorrow...
Fair warning... this first episode shows every bit of nervous energy I was feeling. That aside, I feel that with more practice this show will evolve into something not just fun to do, but also something truly interesting to watch. My hope is that you all learn something and enjoy it, and even though I'm slightly embarrassed by my amateur quality and presentation I am also truly excited to share this with you all. And, excited to continue to grow along with this new cooking show. I hope you like it and will come back to watch it this week, after I have posted it to the blog.
For now here's a little intro/background on how the show was born:
There is something about how food tells a story about the people who eat and/or prepare it that I love.
After discovering the way food can teach you about the people and places unique to those flavors. I really started to delve into the concept of terroir--basically the idea that food takes on characteristics of the area it comes from. And the more I learned, the more I wanted to know. But seeing as I still couldn’t afford to travel to all these wonderful exotic places, I realized that I had to find a different way to experience them. That’s when I discovered that I could start bringing these places home to me, through my cooking.
About this same time, I started batting around the idea of starting an online cooking show. That is where the concept for Big World, Tiny Kitchen was born. I came to the realization that many of you out there share my same penchant for travel, and my same fiscal predicaments. Hence, why I am here today sharing my experiences with you all through this show. My hope is that through this show you will find cooking as culturally and personally enriching as I do.
