From Counter to Table

From Counter to Table

A process documentary featuring an Italian native couple preparing a dish of parmesan eggplants. While it focuses on the process–including shopping, preparation of ingredients, cooking, choice of wine, and table decoration–it also emphasizes the couple’s cultural heritage and closeness. It has a comedic touch. Authentic interviews. Shot in 3 different locations, sound recorded on location. One of the lavalier mics did not work properly and there are some glitches in the audio.
