This recipe was a lot of fun to do. BAYCAT - A great organization dedicated to providing underserved youth guidance and instruction on creating digital media that tells unique stories - came into our space to shoot the video (now on YouTube!) They did an amazing job framing shots, giving us ideas, showing the ingredients, doing the post production, and, most importantly, making the process easy to follow and understand. We hadn't quite realized how difficult it can be to have a relatively easy recipe fit into just over three minutes, so we're completely open to suggestions if you have any!
We can't wait to work with them again. Please let us know what you think at comments@pocodolce.com -- Kathy
