Guiltless Gourmet

This is a cooking video I put together to apply to the W Network expert search in the food and nutrition category. Not realizing it had to be under 2 minutes in length, I made a 20 minute video which I have been busy hacking down. I would love to add to this video but I can only refine it for now. Let me know what you think!

FYI-The guidelines say there can't be any music in the videos at all. Other than that, good job!

The ending happened too quickly for me. I know you are editing madly but suddenly food is ready... you have a flash of salmon cooking with no mention of boiling noodles or when sauce is added, or is that too obvious? Hope this is helpful.

You might want to redistribute the amount of time you spend on explaining the ingredients vs. putting everything together. I caught what goes into the dish, but not how to make it.

Frustrating, because it looks really good, but I can't figure out how to make it from the video! Please take us out of our suffering ;-)

I love your info on the background of your ingredients, but you'll have to work with those 2 minutes... :(

Very nice Gilly. Looks like a "real" cooking show... Also, just out of curiousity, is that D's KitchenAid mixer or yours?

I think instead of hacking down a 20 minute should start fresh and approach it with a "2 minute video" mentality. In hacking it down, the video seems rushed to me. You sound knowledgeable about the nutritional aspects of the ingredients used--so definitely no tweaking needed in that department. The only other thing is that..your voice sounds a bit monotonic. Maybe smile a bit more? An audience likes to have information delivered in a personable, positive, smiling manner...sort of like Ellie Krieger from "Healthy Appetite" on the Food Network.

I know this is unsolicited advice from some random reader...but hopefully you will take it as a constructive critique. Good luck, Gillian. Good luck with all those dreams you have in your head that sometimes keeps you awake, that sometimes make you cry, and other times, makes you smile ear to ear.

I'm trying to pursue my own...

Woman! You are so drop-dead its unbeliable!

I tres enjoyed your little cooking segment altho I agree with some of the comments made before me - as a avid kitchen avoider, I woudn't have been able to figure out how to actually make that delicioux dish. But again I loved your little tid bits about the ingredients - very informative.

So proud of you ma belle - wish I could be in Vancouver this months :(


your amoureuse Aimee ;)
