Food Network Films On Location at RI Kitchen & Bath
RI Kitchen & Bath’s (RIKB) Design Center kitchen was the setting for the Food Network
Star Season 8 Finalist Michele Ragussis as she was filmed preparing various dishes using Hood® dairy products.
These segments were filmed on location at RIKB for upcoming “how-to” recipe videos that are now in production to be released on YouTube over the next several months. It was exciting to watch Chef Michele work right here in RIKB’s very own kitchen, to see her create and incorporate the Hood products for seven delicious recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts. We also got to sample them, and they looked very easy to make.
A film crew came to the Design Center in the morning to set up four cameras, lighting and sound equipment, transforming our kitchen area into a video recording studio. Accessories were brought onto the set to give it a ‘feels like a home kitchen’ look. By the end of the day, it was a “wrap” and all seven segments were complete.
According to the Food Network website, Michele lives in New York but fell in love with seafood and New England cuisine when she moved to Rhode Island for college. For the past eight years, she’s worked as an executive chef in restaurants along the East Coast
RIKB is truly honored to have been a part of this production. We would like to thank Chef Michele and Hood. Be sure to watch for these upcoming recipe videos on YouTube and let us know when you see them!
