Curry Deviled Eggs
I really do love deviled eggs. I didn’t just say that for the sake of making the video. If I see deviled eggs at a potluck, I’m one of the first to take a taste!
This video is an example of having to re-shoot an important segment after making a mistake during the original shoot. I go into great detail about how to jerry-rig a pastry bag from a disposable sandwich bag to pipe the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites but in the original shoot, I made the hole so big, the yolk mixture ended up being an uncontrollable mess and looked worse than if I had just used a spoon instead.
Hubby didn’t want to re-film the segment, at all! Despite my begging, pleading, and whining, he still didn’t want to re-shoot the segment. After all, it takes us over an hour just to set up the lights, camera, etc. before we even think about shooting anything. He didn’t want to spend an hour setting up the lights, camera, adjusting camera angles, etc. and spend another hour tearing down just to reshoot a 30 sec. to 1 min. segment of video.
I was so mortified at how bad the segment looked, I actually told hubby that if we didn’t re-shoot the segment, don’t bother posting the video at all. I was that adamant. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a neurotic perfectionist, but I do believe that if I’m going to do a cooking video, I should try to show people the proper technique so they can recreate what they see without blowing up their kitchen.
However, the wisdom of my position prevailed. After I recruited a professional chef (who’s a good friend and whose professional opinion hubby and I trust) to convince him that I was right and he was wrong, hubby re-shot the segment. There are some continuity issues (I still used the original messy eggs in my closing segment), but I am much happier with the result.
