Calling All Home Cooks, This Is Your Chance To Appear On TV!
Here's how to be featured in Metro Channel’s newest TV show, “Potluck,” from the comforts of your home
Being in quarantine has forced us to refocus from the joys of the outside world. We now spend more time at home than ever before, and the good thing is that so many of us have discovered new sources of joy at home. In the kitchen, for example, we find pleasure in such simple things as creating new dishes, experimenting with new recipes, and rekindling our love for food and cooking.
It's no exaggeration to say eating and cooking is keeping us sane through quarantine. In which case, why let your new (or enhanced) cooking skills go to waste? Instead, here's a chance to showcase it to the world.
Metro Channel has opened submissions for Potluck, a new segment that will feature home cooks just doing what they do best—cooking at home. Imagine, sharing your own cooking for the world to see, being aired besides local and international chefs like Jamie Oliver, Donna Hay, Sandy Daza, and more. Is there a more fun way to cook while in quarantine?
How to join
All home cooks are eligible to participate, from wherever you are in the world as long as you’re at least 20 years old. All you need to do is send a video of yourself cooking your favorite dish. It can be anything under the sun, from classic Filipino dishes and Asian favorites, to quarantine-inspired treats and desserts.
In the video, make sure to introduce yourself, talk about the dish, show the ingredients, and walk us through the cooking process. You can also drop some tips, perhaps a few secret techniques, or maybe just talk about why you like the dish you chose. If you’ve been staying tuned to Metro Channel’s wide variety of cooking shows, you’ll know what to do.
During quarantine, some of your favorite Metro Channel hosts and chefs like Raul Manzano, Miko Aspiras, JP Anglo, Tim Yap, Marc Nelson, and Sandy Daza have been filming their own cooking demos at home. Watch some of their videos below or check out Metro.style on Youtube to get some inspiration for your own submission.
How to submit
First, make sure you’re filming your video in high-definition and in landscape format, without background music. Edit it down to 5 minutes and upload it to Google Drive or via WeTransfer. To know that your video is in high quality, it should be at least 300 mb in mp4 file format.
Send your video via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject My Potluck Video. Make sure to include the following details and attachments to your e-mail:
- Contact number
- Dish name and recipe
- Photos (all in landscape) of the finished product, plus visually appealing shots, and flatlays of the ingredients
- Signed waiver form (download it here)
You can plan, video, edit, and submit your cooking or baking demo until June 30, 2020. Send in as many videos as you want. It’s all about sharing your passion for food.
