About

Aiming to turn food television on its ear, Lara and Erica will inspire you to change the way you eat, cook and watch. The first time Lara and Erica cooked together, they knew they had to have a show.

On their show, they will cook, ask questions, eat, laugh, argue, drink, compete and talk to the real food people- cookbook authors, bakers, farmers, fish mongers, chefs, short order cooks, baristas, butchers and home cooks- to name a few.

Each webisode will contain a cooking segment by Erica, Lara, or a guest and a challenge pitting the hosts against each other. Lara isn't afraid to ask any question and Erica isn't afraid to reveal her inner nerd. What makes their show different is their interaction, their passion, and their curiosity. Viewers will learn while they snort, guffaw, and blow milk through their noses.

Their first step was to tape a completely unscripted show, in one take, that lasted 45 minutes. They learned a lot from that first experience and synthesized their ideas for the show.

Now a severely edited version of that first show is the trailer for the real thing. Their next step is to tape two, ten minute webisodes that will be posted on the internet. After the first batch, they hope to continue taping shows a few times a year.

All they need is the dough to make it happen. They now live over 600 miles apart, so first they have to get to a common location and then they have to pay a camera and editing crew. Help them out and your belly will thank you.
