Eat the World with Emeril Lagasse Episode 2, “The Shanghai Soup Dumpling” – Fixer
Critically acclaimed “Eat the World with Emeril Lagasse”, Amazon Prime’s first unscripted show, hit the internet in September 2016. It was great fun (and delicious) working with Emeril and chef Mario Batali as a fixer for Episode 2, “The Shanghai Soup Dumpling”. The 26 minute episode took us across Shanghai on a dumpling pilgrimage to the city’s top 3 restaurants, as rated in the intriguing scientific Shanghai Soup Dumpling Index. With great shots, characters, and laughs, this was a memorable production for me that I was happy to take a bite out of.
