Yesterday, we shot 3 segments for Ani’s Raw Food Essentials for web, TV, and cable:
The videos will air one a month starting late May, after the new book is available. Here’s a few photos from the day.
Makeup works wonders, and each time I work with a makeup artist, I learn new ways for applying looks. Martin Christopher does makeup for the Playboy Bunnies, and I loved what he did with me eyes and hair.
To get as much of the counter and ingredients into our shots, I had to stand as low to the counter as possible. That meant standing with my legs straddled for hours…quite the thigh workout.
Skye Van Raalte-Herzog (producer), Todd Stevens (exec producer), and Aaron Lee (camera) were great at giving me feedback and direction. They’ve obviously done these shoots many times before and really knew what would work well on camera. They were an awesome team to work with.
A behind-the-camera perspective photo shot by my assistant Jules Castillo. Jules helped us to set up the kitchen for our shoot, then he helped me prep my ingredients too. Great assistants like Jules are wonderful to have around on shoots and projects.
Everyone enjoyed eating up all the food after the shoot. It’s always fun to watch reactions to my food when folks try it for the first time. Skye enjoys lots of raw foods already, but Todd was blown away at how simple and delicious everything was. Thank goodness he loves nuts, since both dishes used walnuts, almonds, and brazil nuts.
I had a birthday celebration to attend last night after the video shoot. Sweetie Martin made sure my hair and makeup were perfect for my evening out. What did I tell you….Playboy hair! I felt like an LA hottie. That is one of the many things I love about LA. You can never be too over or under dolled up.
Once these videos go live, I’ll make sure to post them here. So check back for the first one late May. I can’t wait to watch them myself!
This uncooking episode aired on Supreme Master Television last week to over 4 million views around the world! In it, I show you how to make my Peach & Pistachio Cobbler from my book Ani’s Raw Food Desserts.
Peach & Pistachio Cobbler
Watch my Author’s at Google Lunchtime Talk from May 4th, 2009. This was the kickoff for Ani’s Raw Food Desserts book tour.
Past authors in the Google list of speakers include Obama and Hillary Clinton. Plus, the other Google campuses were netcast in to join my talk too. So cool!
I show Google how to make my Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, from page 49 of my book. And I feed Google my famous Chocolate Candies.
The Ready Mix kits I’m launching will help you make your own Cake and also Chocolate Truffles. I’m still tweaking this product, but for now, it’s available from Essential Living Foods website:
