Things happen spontaneously, without warning, things that would never cross your mind and POW and a challenging and exciting opportunity came my way. The king of BBQ, Steven Raichlen, called to ask if I could fill in for his personal assistant who is having some health issues. The job was flying out to Tucson and working with him as he films his next 13 episodes for PBS. I am offically a food stylist, plate wiper, meat rubber and runner.
It has been challenging to say the least, with a new crew, new location, new chefs and me. Days start at 6 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. We are at a golf resort and I haven't been off property since getting here. Travel time included it is 11 days. I have great photos but I don't have access to download them from the resort.
One of the crew offered to take me to the grocery store tonight, who knew I would be excited to go to a grocery store - anything to get off property.
More to come!
P.S. You know how people who eat a lot of garlic ooze the scent. Well I am full of smoke; hickory, cherry, apple etc
