I love tea. I love cooking with tea. I love to share my tea infused recipes. Cameras don't scare me (well maybe every now & then). So, all points led to me teaming up with The Daily Tea to create a web series this summer to share a few of my favorite tea infused recipes. Hip hip hooray for cooking with tea!
As I tip toe into and through this new adventure, I have started to learn about the wondrous world behind and in front of the camera. From recipe development, script writing, ingredient shopping, pre-prep for swap-in finished dishes, shaking out jitters, watching unedited versions for changes, oh my it has been a whirlwind! On-camera work is a beautiful beast and I am so grateful that I can leap into something exciting and new, ready and willing to learn from my joys and mistakes. There have been delicious moments, bountiful bloopers, laugh out loud giggles, long days and tea stained shirts. I may have actually eaten a teeny tiny bug that landed on my spoon, because it was the last take and I wanted to get the shot just right without starting over (taking one for the team). I've worn my tea infused heart on my sleeve and let you into my world for a moment (even though the kitchen isn't mine). Thank you (and The Daily Tea) for letting me share this new on-camera adventure. I can't wait to sit back, reflect, listen to your comments, learn and hopefully continue on this adventure to share even more of my tea infused recipes.
This summer you can expect 14 episodes on The Daily Tea (7 of which are already live as of today) that will take you through 4 mini recipes, 7 full-length recipes, and 3 tea infused visits in Philadelphia. At this very moment you can watch me whisk, steep, simmer and chop in the following recipe videos:
Keep checking back as I share 7 more episodes, a new one each week. Expect to learn how to make tea infused ice cream sandwiches, cous cous, panna cotta, aioli and pickled peaches. I sincerely hope that you'll be inspired to try a recipe or two in your own kitchen. Just promise to snap a few photos on Instagram and share your experience in a tweet or in the comments section right here. Most important, I hope that you're inspired to bring your teaspoons to the table and dive into the wonderland of cooking with tea.
