Fun and Frolics with Food

I wanted to be sure that those of you who don’t follow my Sugarness food blog wouldn’t miss out on seeing the fun I had with this five-minute cooking video I made with my film-making friend, Stacey Morgan, from Morganic Films, and my partner Neil. You’re welcome. Do you think someone will give me my own cookery show after this? They’re bound to, right? RIGHT?!

  1. Love that tart point of view shot! That’s something you don’t see on the Cooking Channel.

    Also the head wound. You don’t see that on the Cooking Channel either.

    Long story short, you should be on the Cooking Channel. It would be totally badass.

  4. Not hiring you would be the biggest financial mistake of 2015. I like Mike’s observations as well. 😀 😀 😀 You have to be unique to stand out in the crowd. You’re a natural. ❤

  6. I would cook with you! You need your own show. We’ll start a letter campaign. 🙂

  11. You are a riot!! I loved this. Good work, Vanessa. This is my kind of cooking show. I laughed throughout and I was thoroughly entertained. I love the bit the mixing and talking over it, etc. Great! You need your own show. That’s all there is to it.

  12. Finally a cooking show for the typical home baker. I look disheveled after an afternoon of some dessert whipping me into shape. But where is your apron, Darlin’?

    This was hilarious! This video should go viral! 🙂

  13. I laughed all the way through…not sure about a cooking show…perhaps comedy routine! 😀

    And what the heck kind of recipe calls for mixing something for FIFTEEN minutes. I’m sure that if I tried doing that with my mixer you’d see thick black smoke after ten minutes. If you’d done it on a standard one instead of the hand mixer you could have thrown in a dance or two. That would have been fun!

    • Glad you liked it! Yes, we filmed this before Christmas when I only had a hand held mixer, and 15 minutes is a LONG time to be mixing like that. At Christmas I was given a new mixer with a stand, if only I’d waited to make gypsy tart till after that!

      • Yay for mixers!!!! But it wouldn’t have been as funny with a stand up mixer. Someone must have liked them enough to see you needed an upgrade. 😀

  14. The inside oven shot is what really takes the cake, er, tart.

  15. Are videos a regular feature at the other place?! I might have to start following if they are because this was great! The thing is…I don’t think about food that much. It hasn’t gotten under my skin the way it has most folks. It’d be like you subscribing to a blog about American baseball. Nothing wrong with it. Just not your thing (presumably). But this could change the game.

  20. If they don’t give you your own show, someone is missing out. Probably us. That was fantastic. Well done video.

  21. Hilarious! You definitely deserve your own cooking show. Did you get that call already?

  22. If I had a cooking show to give, I would give it to you for sure.

    Stupid question, but is that a real recipe for something that a real person would eat? How is it?

    • Thank you (Oh please let Peg get a cooking show to give!). Yes, it is a real recipe. It’s not very well known outside of Kent where I live, I’d never heard of it before moving to Kent. Even in our small country we still have regional dishes that don’t venture far! It looks a bit like a pale pumpkin pie, but the texture is more mousse-like, the taste is very sweet, kind of milky and a bit caramely. It’s quite nice, but nothing to write home to mother about. Mostly I chose to make it for the video because it was a simple process with few ingredients.

  23. I’m not a cooking-show-watcher, but you know what? YOUR show, I would watch. Not only for the comedy, but the ‘humanness’ of it, for the fun and enjoyment of watching someone enjoy what she does. Hmmm, maybe my show could come after yours – “THE WRITING SHOW” – and Stacey could tape me groaning and typing, groaning more loudly and typing and then shouting out …. – oh, never mind, I guess the show has to be family friendly.

    • Thank you! Maybe we could really have a first by combining the two things and making a cooking AND writing show, because, you know, writing doesn’t involve much talking, so you could just be groaning away in the background while I’m talking through the recipe?

  24. Fabulous video! You should get your own show.
    Man. That tart was all sugar! Great choice for your Sugarness video! Can’t wait for the next one!
    Thanks for bringing this to the party. Stop by anytime!

  25. Yes! Three ingredients. Yes! Sugar. What in the world are all those other cooking goddesses thinking, throwing in chopping, sauté-ing, flambé-ing and cilantro? (Visiting from Susie’s — cheers)

    • Hi, and welcome from Susie’s! I shall come over and visit you soon too! Yes indeed, three ingredients – it took a lot of planning even for that because we had to do more than one take of each thing, so you have to have lots of packs of ingredients and things at different stages, I guess that’s why they have a whole team of people on the actual cookery shows!

  27. Susie sent me over. I thoroughly enjoyed the video, and especially the fact that the recipe had only three ingredients. Bravo on your humorous take!

    • Hi Audrey, thanks for coming over, sorry for the delayed reply! I shall come over and visit your blog in a bit too. I was just explaining on another comment that even with only three ingredients it took a lot of planning because of having to do more than one take of each stage, I made a LOT of gypsy tarts! 🙂
