In 2002, I appeared on an episode of the Cooking Thin Show with chef Kathleen Daelemans on the Food Network. We met up in New York at the Food Network Studios. The set of Molto Mario was just inside, and I got a picture holding one of his wooden spoons. He never knew.
From there, we took a van to a home in Connecticut where filming was done, a whole day of shooting for 22 minutes of footage. It was an interesting, memorable experience, but one time was enough. The work is harder than it looks, and we had to wear make-up.
