As you all know, Bennett Media Studio had been hosting the popular cooking show with star chef Bobby Flay called "Brunch @ Bobby's" and "Bobby Flay Fit". Here's the playlist of "Bobby Flay Fit" and some of the videos of "Brunch @ Bobby's". Enjoy!
Award-winning author and host of Bravo's hit show "Top Chef", Padma Lakshmi was at the Studio for a full day shoot for her new Show and for her new " Wine and Foodie Movie" series. Sterling Winery was also featured, with their impressive and tasty selection of cabernets, pinot noir, and chardonnay. During the shoot, there were quite a few bottles which disappeared amongst us.
Padma is best known for her Top Chef Show on Bravo. But she is also a popular fashion model, writer, actor and entrepreneur. Helmut Newton first captured the scar on her arm, and turned it into a fashion statement. From there she ascended the difficult path to becoming a " Super model", with Paris runways, magazine covers, and TV shows. The film career took off with Holywood and, given her Indian descent, Bollywood, where she has many credits. Or perhaps you saw her as the Egyptian Princess Bithia discovering the baby Moses in " The Ten Commandments" .
However, her instincts and passion for food is what makes her a talented chef. Her cookbooks are quite popular, full of exotic flavors yet residing on a low fat premise throughout. Maybe that has something to do with her keeping her trim shape so constant.
Robert Whitman was most brilliant at the shoot. His portfolio is one of the best I have ever seen.
A wine tasting will be scheduled in the Fall with the Sterling Wines.

Bobby Flay from TV Food Network, and owner/chef of Mesa Grille and Bolo in New York, shot several episodes of his TV Show here at Bennett Media Studio. He was a delight to work with, and having him film his show here was a real treat. It felt like having " personal" cooking lessons to see how he spins his magic with food. On this episode below, ( one of 20 shows shot here) Bobby demonstrates how to make Acorn Squash. He cooked this recipe on the Grill located on the Terrace off the Kitchen.
He will be back in my kitchen in a few weeks to do 20 more shows. I will get a chance to share with you some more recipes. Or you can wait until these shows premiere on the new season for TV Food Network.
