The Making of Love Every Mouthful video and my contribution.
Well, I guess this is my readers first glimpse of seeing me in action during the 'Making of the Love Every Mouthful video' for Tesco and to hear about Tesco's tremendously inspiring notions about the food they supply and how it is enjoyed by the customers and vicariously promoted and embellished upon by the passionate staff UK wide. As I said in the previous 'enormously popular and over a thousand hits in two days' - blogpost; the day filming the advert was a fantastic experience. Sorry if that last statement sounded like blowing one's own trumpet overly loudly but I do check out the blogposts in terms of the stats and predictably perhaps, this one has exceeded well beyond my expectations. In the filming of my part of this video I actually spoke for a lot longer than the clips shown on the edited version above, but - in a nutshell- they have encapsulated my ramblings and made something coherent from it. Not that I talk a lot. Gosh no.
My belief is that there will be three or four Love Every Mouthful adverts and I will feature in one of them that concentrates on meat. In the last couple of days myself and three other folk involved in the advert from Tesco have appeared on the OurTesco website.
Personally, I am going to be profiled and featured in a Tesco in house magazine called The One and there is the potential for other promotions online and on video for the Love Every Mouthful campaign.
At work I am part of a poster for employees promoting the Love Every Mouthful campaign. I think this has come just at the right time because I genuinely do love sharing food ideas and passions with friends and customers and delight in the fact that they ask me for advice whether it be something I have practiced, have trained in over the years or just read with interest about and retained. I seem to constantly have my head in a book about food or watching a telly programme live or on bbciplayer. Love it all! As my hero Raymond Blanc is very fond of saying - "Ooh la la! Food! Glorious food! So intense! Hmmm the flavours! The herbs and spices! The taste!"
Well, thank you for watching this short video and taking an interest in my foodie adventures. I'm off to Wales next week to do a Gold meat training course with Tesco - from the field to the table, apparently. So I will be getting down and dirty with the steers and heifers in mid Wales for a while. If the police come knocking Daisy the cow was the one that trampled me first! The rest just followed orders. Daisy will be the one with the mad look in her eyes and denial in her heart. I will be the one with the hoof print on my head!
