Behind the scenes: cooking videos
Posted by Merritt Watts
The film crew and our food editor, Sam, hard at work.
Each month, the iPad edition of Everyday Food features a handful of fun cooking videos that show you how to make a recipe or demonstrate a cool technique. Shooting the videos in our kitchen studios is always exciting - and satisfying! Check out my snapshots from our most recent shoots...
Nothing makes food look more delicious than natural light. We're lucky that our Manhattan studios have such a beautiful view!
Creating the cooking videos is pretty straightforward - cook and shoot! No smoke and mirrors here.
We speed things up by creating a "mise en place" for each recipe - measured ingredients ready for cooking. Any guesses on what we're making here? Look for it in our Jan/Feb issue!
Pretty food = good lookin' videos. Don't you love the look of these potatoes?
Once we've got the shot - we dig in!
