Shopping for Spargel with Chef Jan

“You know what we should do?”


“We should make a video-about spargel!”

The idea seemed so easy at the time.  But when the Good Idea Fairy visits you and your friend in a charming unassuming French cafe, you take it all in with your cup of coffee and you get down to business making a video about a vegetable.

Getting ready to do a little shopping in Wiesbaden!

Of course I have never done a video before, so there was a bit of a learning curve.  One where hours of frustration resulted.  Mostly with trying to get a highly recommended video editing program to work without crashing.  After losing hours of sleep I ended that relationship.  And since I’m not one to throw in the towel, when it is obvious that so many other people have successfully created a video, I started searching for solutions on my own terms and came up with something I’m happy with.  Grant it I have plenty to learn but being my first attempt, I can’t wait to show you what Chef Jan and I have been up to!
