Behind the SCENES with Bertolli & TODAYSHOW.COM

Many months ago, my friends at Bertolli asked me to participate in a sponsored spot for the Today Show's "Cooking School" web site on MSN! On a hot morning in September, we drove from our hotel in Manhattan to the location in New Jersey and filmed "Becoming Soup Savvy". I shared soup etiquette and serving tips, in conjunction with the launch of their Meal Soup line. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos and the finished product:

Lights, camera...


We were filming at a private house rather than a set, so our crew had to do some creative maneuvering with their equipment. Lots to trip over!


Setting Scene 3, where I discussed the dos and don'ts of soup. (Tip: it is not ok to faceplant into the bowl, no matter how good it smells.)


Hamming it up while waiting for the scene to roll. Next to me is Maria and then Margaret (you can just barely see her pretty curly hair) of ItalianAmericanGirl.com


And here's Paula of Bellalimento.com, filming her segment. After being Twitter pals for ages (ok, since we both got on Twitter...I guess 2008 is "ages ago" on the internet),  we FINALLY got to meet in person! She demonstrated how to make a fabulous pomegranate panna cotta in ten minutes.
