We interrupt our regularly scheduled dinner program to announce that Good Bite has gone LIVE! Yes, finally, the Big Secret Project is not a secret anymore. And phew – what a relief, after two months of not being able to talk about it! I’m terrible at keeping secrets. (Just kidding – you can totally tell me stuff. Please do.)
So here’s the gist – I nearly hit the floor when the DECA producers, the ones who brought us Momversation, called in April (from LA) and asked if I would be interested in being a part of this new online cooking conversation, putting me alongside the likes of David Lebovitz, Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites, Deb from Smitten Kitchen, Elise from Simply Recipes, Shauna and Danny from Gluten Free Girl, Diane and Todd from White on Rice Couple, Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen, Jeanne Kelley from her self-named Kitchen, Catherine McCord from Weelicious, and…. me. I’m still pinching myself, sitting here at my desk in pink flannel PJ pants, as I write this.
Billed as “top food bloggers, fresh ideas – making cooking fun and easy”, Good Bite features weekly conversations and shows you new recipes that are demoed by Good Bite’s in-house chef. We are all given a topic and told, like Mike Meyers in Coffee Talk, to talk amongst ourselves. We all then go off and chat about our ideas using portable HD cameras in our own kitchens. How much fun is that?
Did I mention the “top food bloggers” part?
And I’m pretty sure I said on the phone that um… this is Julie? Julie Van Rosendaal? And when it became evident they were confident they had reached the right person, I went with it. Still, I am getting near-constant flashbacks to junior high school when I finally managed to sit at the right table for lunch with the cool kids but fully expected to be bumped unceremoniously off the end at any moment, spilling fries and gravy all over my Benetton rugby shirt.
Above is my very first segment, done with Elise and Shauna, on the very appropriate topic of lazy meals. (I never realized how much I hate my ears.) I can’t wait to do my next, and to bring the camera to Tofino this summer. (I think if regular cameras add 10 pounds, HD cameras add 30…)
