Thread: Got a chef role on HBO's Treme!

    Got a chef role on HBO's Treme!

    I saw an add on Craig'sList and figured "why the hell not." Had in interview a couple days later and before it sunk in, I was on set filming. Last season, Eric Ripert was the celebrity chef. This season it is David Chang. If you have never heard of this guy, you absolutely have to check him out. Awesome.

    The first episode, I was just background. My job was to fillet mackerel. You might just see a Nenox gyuto and a Shigefusa yanagi on HBO...

    Today, we shot the 2nd episode and I got a bit more face time. In the morning we got a plating demo by Chang and we saw how the dishes were supposed to look. We shot a service scene today and I had a blast. This TV/Movie industry is crazy. So many moving parts and people everywhere. Speaking of it. The set is incredible. It is a reproduction of Momofuku Ko in New York. It is amazing what these set guys are capable of.

    I have a few pics I took with my iPhone. I'll try and get them uploaded later on and post them in here.

    Oh by the way. I think the season starts on April 24th.
    And here is a link to David Chang's website. http://www.momofuku.com/

    I haven't watched any Treme, but from the little I know about it, it doesnt sound cooking related. How is the cooking incorporated into the show? I thought it was a drama about post katrina new orleans?

    Regardless, congrats! Sounds like a unique opportunity.

    Well first of all, New Orleans life = food. It is one of the most important aspects of the culture down here. It is only fitting that one of the main stories involves food/restaurant life.

    The story is something about a chef that re opens after Katrina but fails. She moved to NYC and worked with Eric (last season) and is now at Momofuku with Chang. I honestly didnt watch all of the first season so I don't really know all of the details about it.

    So true. I can't wait to go back in October. Been almost 10 years, but am lining up the restaurants to go to now!

    The first episode that I am in finally aired tonight. Yes, it was blurry and short but there is a bit more to come. Maybe you can make it out from the angle but I was filleting a mackerel with my Nenox and looking busy.
