It's an incomprehensible honour to be nominated this year in the 'Visual & Technical Excellence' category alongside CNN's Parts Unknown and Netflix's Chef's Table - two of the food world's giants.
Last year S3 was nominated in the 'best web series on location' category. This year the nod was heavily pointed at the creators/technicians behind the productions - with S4 having been shot, edited, scored, coloured, - everything done by a one-man operation...me. I was also the only Canadian resident nominee that I know of. Again - a surreal honour.
I'll forever be indebted to the James Beard Foundation for acknowledging the work that we're doing. They've quickly lifted the project up onto a world stage, having happily existed in a small corner of the ecosystem of food content for half a decade.
We didn't win this year, but it truly was a victory either way.
Thanks for all of your support and interest in the show. We roll out soon to continue filming S6, and are starting pre-production work on S7.
