From tracking down the perfect kitchen to making sure there are enough lemons to dress the set, Marie Guggedahl deems no detail too small when it comes to Whole Foods Market’s cooking series, Freshly Made. As the associate producer, it’s her job to make sure the shoots run smoothly, which sometimes means being head taste tester on set. We asked her to share one of her favorite new recipe videos coming out of the studio.
Cacio e Pepe: This dish was exactly what we look for when choosing what recipes will work best on camera. The simplicity of the recipe — only six ingredients — makes it easy for viewers to follow and the melting cheese factor makes it hard to look away! The only person on set that might not have enjoyed shooting this dish was our production assistant, who had to grind black pepper for about an hour for all the shots. Don’t worry though. He got his fill of cacio e pepe at the end of the day!
