A few weeks ago, I was reading my Gastronauts newsletter and saw an invitation to be on a Food Network show, so I figured, what the heck. Might as well send them an e-mail and see what happens. Maybe I was one of the only people to send an e-mail or maybe they handpicked me from a list of thousands, doesn’t matter to me because I was there and had a Fried Lox Bagel.
It wasn’t half bad. Could have used some red onions and capers, though. The people that ordered the food were from a production company in Minnesota – I don’t know if they’d ever had proper Lox bagels before, so for the record, all you Minnesotans; Lox, Cream Cheese, Capers, Red Onions, and if you like soupy jelly on your bagel as well, Tomato (I don’t know why this is such a staple – it’s terrible).
Here’s the pre-shoot (we couldn’t take video when the production company was taking video):
Tune in tomorrow for my full bloggity rundown on all the wonderful and interesting things we ate at the shoot!
