Since I shared my final replace, I’ve been onerous at work on my cookbook manuscript. My cookbook is predicted to launch in 2025. Listed below are two posts I shared about my manuscript course of to date:
Along with my cookbook, I’ve been doing about 1 billion different issues like testing and publishing recipes on my web site, planning forward for vacation baking season, and doing a pair intense weeklong recipe video shoots in my residence kitchen. (Which I’m exhibiting you beneath!)
All whereas making an attempt to run an organization and stability that with my youngsters, household, and different elements of my life… and someway keep wholesome and sane!
I in all probability wouldn’t be capable to handle all of it, if not for the fantastic individuals I’ve supporting and surrounding me. My unimaginable husband, hardworking crew, and proficient video crew… plus the opposite creators and authors I join with regularly, and, after all, my readers! Studying all of the heartfelt messages I obtain from you provides me a lot pleasure and achievement, and actually provides me the power I must preserve creating. I discuss this a bit within the “About” video we filmed throughout this video shoot—extra on this beneath!
Recipe Video Shoot
This previous spring, we as soon as once more reworked my residence kitchen right into a video set to movie a contemporary batch of recipe tutorials to share with you. We really simply did this once more final week, too, and I’ll present you these behind the scenes quickly!
Filming 20+ recipe movies in just some days requires lots of people, a number of work, a number of planning forward and group, and, after all, a number of meals! Fortunately, it’s a large crew of individuals with loads of hungry pals, household, and neighbors who cease over to see the motion.
We filmed quite a lot of walk-you-through-the-recipe tutorials in addition to “palms and pans”-style recipe movies. I additionally had the crew put collectively an “About” video, to briefly share the story behind my profession and web site. I added this to my web site’s About web page.
A few of these new movies have already been printed on my YouTube channel, and also you’ll discover each embedded within the recipe card on the recipe submit web page on my web site.
I just lately printed a The right way to Crimp & Flute Pie Crust tutorial, which we filmed throughout this video shoot in addition to a palms/pans fashion video for Blueberry Pie.
Whereas I’ve my whole crew and my video crew right here, we attempt to movie as many recipe movies as potential, to benefit from our time.
Every little thing is filmed in my residence kitchen, the place I do most of my skilled work… and, after all, cook dinner and bake with/for my household.
Filming 20+ recipe movies over a couple of days calls for group, and to assist preserve the whole lot straight, we measure and set out the entire substances on separate baking sheets. This can be a little trick of the commerce!
That means I can seize precisely what I want for the video we’re filming.
Right here we’re filming a tutorial for my chocolate buttercream recipe:
Even with the entire planning and other people round, some issues can nonetheless go improper! Filming a cultured, seamless video for French Silk Pie was fairly the other off display screen. The chocolate curls stored breaking up beneath the warmth of the lights, so I needed to apply the fragile chocolate curls with tweezers. LOL.
It turned out fairly although! However then I dropped the slice off the pie server…
Oftentimes, recipes must bake and fully cool, or chill within the fridge, so we’re normally doing 2 or 3 movies at a time, weaving in steps and scenes the place we are able to.
It’s onerous work and lengthy days for everybody, however I wouldn’t do it if it wasn’t additionally enjoyable. Today are intense, however they’re additionally stuffed with a lot laughter. The video crew even compiled among the humorous moments they caught on digicam. LOL.
Did you see steamies?! 😉
