Foodie Fashionista

The last few days have seen a dearth of blogging for yours truly. There are tantalizing recipes coming, and splendid pictures to tempt the eyes, however I am ironing out some technical difficulties.  Your regularly scheduled programming will return before you can say “hand-cut chocolate ravioli filled with Shuksan strawberries in lavender crema pasticcera.” In the meantime, please enjoy this cheeky video mission statement shot by the maddeningly-talented Luuvu Hoang.  Luuvu is a food cinematographer of the highest order. He shoots promos for restaurants, and even videos for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, so I was fortunate to enlist his help with this little project.  If you love food and need a video he is definitely the person to talk to.  The still pictures throughout the video were shot by the beautiful and uber-creative people photographer Stephanie Dyane on location at Enciso Family Farms as part of a farm-to-table series.


This mission statement was intended as a submission for Oprah’s “Your OWN Show” video entry contest, however the powers that be over in Oprah-land said it didn’t meet their submission requirements.  I can’t figure out why, and they won’t respond to me with any details, so I’m disappointed since we spent a good deal of time making the video. Oprah herself didn’t blackball me so don’t think I’m starting a war with the most powerful woman in America- I wouldn’t want to wither under the wrath of Her Empire a la James Frey.  In any case, I can use the video as a sort of “about me.”  It will likely wind up in that section of this website. Someday maybe I’ll actually have a show like I propose in the video, but in the meantime I’ll stick to perfecting food I’m hereby dubbing “sustainable-esoteric” and geeking-out on camera for all you lovely people.

*Disclaimer- I am not a rapper, so don’t make fun of my rapping skillz, and I did not choose the outfit worn during the rap section of this video- I would never have put so many “chintz-y” pieces together.

ENJOY, xo, linda

share, bitches...
