From last night’s event in downtown OKC, Dave Cathey takes us on a tour of the tables. Chocolate everywhere. In drinks. On plates. And CocoFlow, which we’ll have another video on later next week, won the judges’ tastebuds.
Shot the latest four segments in our Gourmet Grille at Buy For Less series to begin the day. Sean (Sean Cummings’ Irish Restaurant and Pub) and Cathy (Vito’s Ristorante) Cummings were in rare form this morning. They cheffed up two soups, some scallops and a pepper crusted steak.
Caught up with the Food Dude, The Oklahoman’s food editor, Dave Cathey for lunch. Cathey and I discussed some of our upcoming video series, the Lunch Birds, Try This! and a Chef’s Table concept. We were joined at Rococo Restaurant & Fine Wine by owner/chef Bruce Rinehart, Iguana Grill owner/chef Ryan Parrott and Kristy Klockhart. I recommend the Rococo’s Gangster Sausage Grinder. I’d also recommend a pair of Rinehart’s always flashy pants. Next time you’re there, see for yourself.
Back at OPUBCO Studios, I interviewed the National Weather Service’s Rick Smith via Skype this afternoon. Rick is the warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Norman Forecast office. It’s going to get cold. We will do more interviews throughout the winter and spring, including tomorrow morning for an update.
Ryan Parrott, chef/owner of Iguana Grill, sat down a couple weeks ago with us. In fact, it was the same night we shot the interviews for the upcoming Skirvin video with Steve Lackmeyer and Jack Money.
Tanner Herriott and Dave Cathey handled the interview with Parrott. Tanner used the Canon 7D and a Zoom audio recorder. Great images, audio sounded great too considering it was only the onboard Zoom mic, stereo setting. Notice the “Top Chef” type shooting of the food and the rich colors.
And the funky music.
Ever turn right when you drive into Stillwater? Typically, I turn left towards the Oklahoma State University campus.
Not Tuesday night. Nope. On a mission, Mel and I met Tanner Herriott, his new bride Anne, Dave Cathey (The Oklahoman’s Food Editor) and his wife Lori for a video shoot at the Tokyo Pot, 108 W 10th Ave. (Urbanspoon review)
Cathey wanted to shoot a Table One-style video of this shabu-shabu concept restaurant. Tanner shot with the Canon 5D, capturing audio with his usual JVC rig.
The food was great. Thinly sliced meats and vegetables.
Three pots in the middle of the table over burners for cooking, see the pic at the right for a visual. One was only water, the other two were more sweeter or spicier. The meats ranged from chicken to fish to lamb to the star attraction – the ribeye.
We all had a great time, donning costumes and listening to the entertaining and engaging owners.
Story and video is upcoming.
No sake bombs were consumed during the taping of that segment.
