SC Previews Anne In Jan.

By: Secretary Confidential

Today, I weaseled my way into one of the edit rooms. “Just pretend I’m not here,” I told editor and producer extraordinaires, Jim and Jenny. They're working on Anne Burrell’s Secrets of a Restaurant Chef. No spoiler here, but come January 17th , you're in for a treat. Chef Burrell’s grilled pizza episode is sizzling. No major gaffes, other than the overuse of “lovely,” and a few “ums,” which probably won’t make their way to your screens.

The color coordination—all pastels with pink spoon AND rolling pin — is so sweet; you’ll get a rush before she whips out the pizza dough. However, the girly décor doesn’t keep Anne from doing the tough stuff, like opening a bottle of oil with her teeth -- or actually, removing the bottle wrapper ( that part might get cut).

I dug for dirt on the snappy blonde from my new peeps. I learned about Anne’s sous chef, who's on Top Chef now, and heard big praise for the steak recipe. Evidently, Anne's brown sugar-coated steak is pleasing to carnivores and dessert-ivores alike. So nice -- Jim's made it twice.

Before I go, a shout out for Tyler. Saw you the other day in the elevator, Mr. Florence, bundled and sniffly. You’re a trooper!

Until next time, when I visit my new BFF's editing Sunny on Cooking for Real.

Yours truly,
Secretary Confidential
