ABC7 Says I’m A “Food Paparazzi” – Local Broadcast

April 24, 2010

For those that may not know, I WAS ON TV TODAY. Local news, yes, but on camera nonetheless!

kABC7 in Los Angeles did a little bit about the “food paparazzi” (i.e. people who take pictures of food at restaurants) as part of their 11 o’clock news and yours truly was featured in it. It’s an understatement that I was freaking out when I saw myself on screen – my hands are still shaking a little bit.

Our little on-screen moment was shot at Petrossian, a restaurant that, from my prior reviews (here and here), you should all know I love. Not only is the food amazing, but the lighting there is just so perfect – not much editing needed to get deliciously enticing photos.

Thus, in honor of my little 5-second on screen performance, a sneak peek into my most recent meal at Petrossian. (You can read the actual review here).

    Ahh soft news, my favorite. 😉

    Was this precoordinated, or did the news crew just happen to show up??? Who’s the other girl, the one who didn’t get any screen time?

    The back story is that Linden was contacted by ABC7 after the LA Times article to do this little gig. He set the whole thing up with the camera crew and Petrossian – I just tagged along for the ride. The fourth diner in our group is Amy, Linden’s better half (she didn’t want to be on camera).

    NIce pics, Fel! I’ve got to get my blog post up but they did use some of my pics for the story. Agreed on the lighting there. It’s perfect for photos.

    Thanks for remembering the descriptions of the off-menu dishes too. Now I can just refer to yours. You’re like the new Kevin ;P

    And Kevin, yes, that’s Amy, my fiance. She’s a photog by training but didn’t want to be interviewed on camera.

    As much as I hate to say it, I am glad I wasn’t the only one who was nervous. Everytime I watch it I think I sound like a bumbling fool. However, it was a blast & a great opportunity to meet you.

    I thought you sounded intelligent and calm! (Maybe we’re both too overly critical about ourselves…) Either way, I had a great time meeting you as well – hopefully we’ll meet again soon!
