Talent Tests

By: Operation Foodie
Sometimes I feel as though as our Studios A & B never sleep. 

Right after Secrets of a Restaurant Chef (or as we call it: SORC or Secrets) wrapped up last week in Studio A, a few of the producers and I headed over into Studio B for a quick run of Talent Tests.  Studio B, as most studios, wear a variety of hats.  Just by redirecting the lights away from Next Food Network Star's (aka: NFNS or Star) lounge like set (don't worry, you'll see those orange walls soon enough) and setting up some monitors and cameras, we were ready within a few hours with what looked like a completely new set! 

The 3 ladies came in the next day, did a fantastic job... and now Studio B is back to being NFNS ready!  It still amazes me how versatile a blank canvas can be, sometimes completely unrecognizable from week to week. 

Next up on my plate: another Talent Test shooting in our Kitchens (any reason to hang with Rob Bleifer is enough reason for me to come to work) and then Guy's Big Bite in the end of March!!

A couple of important notes: 

1. On the Rob Bleifer front, I did his makeup last week for a webisode!  Ok, I put a little bit of powder on him (courtesy my friend Kathleen who is our Make-Up Artist) - but STILL!  It was awesome.

2. Congrats to a new Good Food Garden that went up over the weekend in South Beach!!! (If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you better check out the link!)  Way to go, Sarah!

Cheers!
