My Experience Filming for “You Gotta Eat Here” and Airing Date- Part 1

Hello everyone,

On June 2nd, I finished filming for a “kids edition” episode of “You Gotta Eat Here” (a show on the Food Network) at Yolks in Strathcona, Vancouver. I am guest starring in this episode along with the host, John Cattuci.

When my dad and I first walked to the restaurant, the sign that usually shows today’s special said, “Sorry Closed for Filming”. We knocked on the door to the restaurant. Within a few seconds, someone opened the door and we were let in.

When we got inside, we discovered that John had not arrived yet so we sat down and waited. We interacted with the director, the producer and the rest of the crew. We said hello to the owner and head chef of Yolks, Steven Ewing. After a couple of minutes, John arrived. The crew got the set ready and we started filming at around 9:30 am. We were creating Yolks’ famous “Duck Confit Eggs Benedict”. What I did not know was that we had to film and do everything twice. First, we got some spices crushed them and rubbed them on the chicken. They filmed as a wide angled shot. Then, they cleaned everything up and set everything up exactly the way it was before. John, Steven and I got back in our places and did the exact same thing as we did before except that they filmed us close up. This was repeated through the whole process of creating the dish. The cool thing was they had a camera on me they whole time they were shooting. They called it the Ty Cam.

The awesome thing about filming everything twice is that we made the dish twice which meant that I got to eat the dish twice. The show is airing tomorrow at 5:00 PM (PST) on the Food Network. Tomorrow after the show, I will be posting part 2. I hope you enjoy the show.

You’ve got to check out Yolks. The whole restaurant its self is amazing. The food is great and the service is wonderful. They have really nice servers at Yolks and so is the owner. Inside the restaurant is a machine that literally squeezes oranges to make orange juice. It tastes great. Above is some pics of the food. The first 1 is their Egg Benedict, the second dish is the hash browns, and the last picture is their pancakes. The presentation and creativity is super. The only bad thing I can say about Yolks is that it is quite busy between 9 AM-1 PM. Otherwise I would say that their food is top notch. You’ve got to eat here.
