20 Dollar Dinners (Episode 1) *Limited Time Only*


20 Dollar Dinners (Episode 1)

It's been a while since I've posted a video, there's a few things I've been working on. One of them is this piece that I've beem working on with Toan Lam for Current TV.

So why you might ask is this video only available for a limited time? Well, under Current's new submission terms, I can't not have a video on both Current and my blog. So once the piece gets submitted it will have to disappear from my blog for the next three months.

The 20 Dollar project was started by David Bobrow; the project is an experiment in viral media.
Spend 20 dollars of your hard-earned cash, pursuing that theme. What is key is that there are no right or wrong answers here. You are simply - or elaborately - telling a story of how twenty dollars gets spent. Find irony. Find humanity. Find something that will make the story interesting to you, and interesting to people you respect.
From that initial idea, Toan and I conceived the idea for 20 Dollar Dinners, and we've since shot and edited the first episode. Please let us know what you think, and any suggestions you might have for us so that we can fine-tune this piece before we send it off to Current.

What a great idea for a cooking show! Jalapeno is the secret ingredient.

great idea. fun video.

try dried red chilis next time instead of the jalapenos. oh and simply using chopped fresh tomatoes will be enough. you dont need anything canned or bottled. nothing works better than tomatoes, garlic, basil & olive oil. (sorry, im italian... i should just shut up and vlog it.)
