Be a better Food Presenter!

For culinary professionals, cooking is easy. Add explaining what you are doing while fielding interview / host questions and maybe plugging your restaurant, bakery or new cookbook to the mix and the task suddenly becomes more challenging.

Whether cooking on television, conducting a video taped food demonstration, or performing in front of a live audience, media appearances are not an easy walk in the park. Culinary media appearances require special skills, detailed planning, preparation, and extensive practice.
