Recipe for creating a successful food TV show ...
I'd love to see Edible Publications become a tv program. They already populate a wonderful food magazine across the country, offer radio podcasts, videos, local live events and have a dedicated advertising base with plenty of offsprings!
The award winning photography and writing staff could easily translate to tv.
Edible Publication TV could take on a region of the country and interview/cover the very food people, places and things they cover now in print.
Complete details about the recipe. i.e. if you need to beat eggs and sugar for 5 minutes..then say so. Also...more focus on the food than on the host. Example: John Besh has a show on PBS/Create. He is clearly NOT the "look at me" over zealous host--in fact, he seems uncomfortable at times--and this is great, IMHO. He focuses entirely on the FOOD. I cannot stand that over-zealous smile (Giada)..or the "look-at-me" host. Just gimme the recipe and details.
I always thought having a foul mouthed British Chef to travel from failing restaurant to failing restaurant, where he at first humiliates the ownership and management, then winds up in a Russian Bath house with the owners, smacking high five and pinching each others nipples would be a good premise for a food show.
But what do I know?
