The Gourmoo Cookoff – Episode 1, Appetizers!

And the cookoff has begun! Each week a new episode will be released on Moovision until the Cookoff Champion is revealed. This first episode is all about appetizers and there was some fierce competition!

It’s so strange for me to watch myself and see how serious I appear! Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m quite the opposite (check out these behind the scenes pics for proof). And although we had such a great time on set, I suppose it was a bit serious considering one of these contestants were going to win a culinary vacation. What you don’t see on the video is that each judge took their turn critiquing each dish; it wasn’t the back and forth as it appears in the video. And there’s a very large room filled with so many people…it’s you-could-hear-a-pin-drop quiet and you’re the only one speaking to the crowd. I was surprised that I wasn’t more intimidated by the cameras though, in fact it was almost as if they weren’t there. I credit a lot of that to director Anna Christopher; she made the shoot always professional yet relaxed and fun!

I’m curious to know what you thought of this cookoff episode and if you agree with the judges decision. Any early predictions as to who the winner might be?!!

Have a great day!
