Scorpians and Ants – The Shoot

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

I loved working with Mrs. Wang at the Imperial Herbal Restaurant in Singapore. She is so incredibly knowledgeable of Chinese Herbs and their medicinal benefits.

You’ll notice that my seat will be empty from time to time, that’s because I was shooting B roll or a close-up. We were so comfortable working together that, she just kept on giving great advice and I loved the relaxed feel. I hope you do too! Please let me know~ http://www.cookingtipstv.com/v/111,scorpions-and-ants-yum!.html

Pasta in the rain

It’s been raining here in Marin County, CA and pasta has been on my mind.
