This is an idea I have had in my head for over five years now, teaching people how to cook from scratch using everyday ingredients bought from local supermarkets. There are a lot people who want to cook but think it’s too hard, especially those living alone and who may never have had the chance to learn.
I have two passions, filming and cooking and with my production skills I am combining both passions to produce a unique taste of Scotland, archiving the best locally produced family meals with a bit of humour added along the way.
How many times do you read a recipe book to discover you either don’t know what certain ingredients are or you can’t source them, this is where “One Roving Cook” delivers, all my recipes are simple and locally sourced in shops we all shop in.
Why “Roving”, simple I will take you to different kitchens throughout the series to meet and enjoy different characters and flavours from all round local Scottish family kitchens.
It will have a mixture of meals from healthy to the not so healthy.
I am not a professional cook as you all know but have been cooking the family meals for well over 25 years and have picked up a few ideas along the way, I got a great recipe from Doreen a professional catering cook while filming a child’s bar mitzvah many years ago.
As you can see it’s not a professional kitchen and it will be shot with three cameras, the main one being a JVC LS300 with a 12-40mm f2.8 Olympus PRO lens, a Panasonic GH4 with a 7-14mm f2.8 Olympus PRO lens for static wide shot and a static remote controlled Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 with a 24-400mm f2.8-4 Leica zoom lens from the roof, all shooting 1080 50p.
I would like to thank JVC at this point for giving me such a great deal on the LS300 and for helping part sponsor this program. I am still looking for sponsors from kitchen utensils to a major food retail outlet, If you can point me in the right direction I would be most appreciated email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you like to invite me into your kitchen email me with your recipe. I will show you the pilot when we have produced one, hopefully this week.
