Getting Overexpose by Hungry Nation

When my friends at Hungry Nation were over here filming my “Fresh Five” secret ingredients, they also forced me, under threat of severe physical injury, to do an interview called a “Meet & Eat.” I spend most of my free time thinking of ways to avoid going on camera, so I’m really never comfortable (or very good) doing these things, but since they did such a great job on the production, and took the time to put this together for me, I feel the least I can do is show it off here. I’ve also included the full Mahi Mahi Ceviche video below. Enjoy!

Chef John, you present yourself on camera so well..very natural...would not be surprised to see you in spot appearances in movies. tv...

thanks for all you have done for the layperson with FoodWishes...as a person with a visual disability, your blog and Youtube videos has opened up the opportunity for me to learn culinary skills that most likely would not be available via auditory format of a cookbook or tv food presentations as they tend to be more centered about the chef, the guests, not the science or technique of the preparation of a culinary dish...you are truly blessed...

I LOVED this! I've been watching your videos for a long time now, and I always wondered what you look like!

I love your style; easy, confident, no-nonsense. I know way too many people who think they "can't" cook, and it makes me crazy. I learned to cook with my adopted mom, whose philosophy was "a little bit of this, a little bit of that, cook it till it's done." I am passing that attitude on to my daughters.

Thanks for all you do!

Great to see you, Chef John! Actually, I can see you as a host to some tv show, like a movie show host where we come back to you and you make comments.

your love of food really comes across. Regrettably this year in central Texas was not conducive to herbs, even the rosemary could not stand the 27 days of over 100 degrees and the lack of rain sealed their fate.

I thoroughly enjoyed the interview, and the Ceviche looks great, too! I agree w/ Anonymous #1's comments: I've also learned a lot from your method of teaching/cooking. As a result, I feel more confident when I attempt one of the dishes I watched you prepare. Thanks for all you do!!!

Chef John,

You are so down to earth. I haven't had the time for exploring new cooking lately, but I just checked in to hear that voice. A dash of sanity.

All my best,

Paul

Chef, you're worried for no reason - that was a great interview.

The first recipe I ever made from FW was your eggplant parm casserole. I had to bring something to a dinner party, and that video is what Google served up to me. It was a hit, and I've been watching your vids ever since. THANKS for making me look so food savvy to all my friends! (-:

I just discovered your blog and am so excited!!!!!! I already made two meals (chx & mushroom, and garlic shrimp) and they were delicious!

Not only that but the way you film and break down the process really makes me want to watch every video even if I'm not ready to make every item yet :)

Thank u so much for this blog...I've signed up for it, bookmarked it, and been sharing on Fb like crazy. This a truly fabulous idea. THANKS!

Your old bosses lost a great Chef and excellent teacher! Thank God! You are a joy to listen to and learn from. Thank you so much for all that you do. The food network would never give you a show. In a very short time you would run all the other guys off and would be on 24/7!
