The Cooks vs Cons shoot was a looong day -- 14 hours. There's a lot of waiting, some napping efforts, some eating (I ordered sashimi for dinner, not realizing that nothing-but-raw-fish is probably the last thing you want when your nerves are at peak levels).
You film many things multiple times, but the actual cooking only happens once. On a day that can move in slo-mo, those rounds went so super fast.
A lot of it was a blur, but here's a taste of what I was thinking during those gone-in-a-flash 30-minute rounds.
And ICYMI, I posted the recipe for my Round 1 polenta gnocchi with creamy corn soubise here. Round 2 recipe coming soon...
