It might not be cooking 

We’re filming our spot on Good Morning tomorrow afternoon, so we have to pretend it’s Friday morning. It’s our first non-live —and let’s hope the only one. Pre-recorded feels different, a bit like that time they filmed that one episode of The Show without a studio audience because people were too depressed after was assassinated.
   Our reason is that there’s some TVNZ retreat going on this Friday, and the crew’s heading north.
   And we’ve been advised that we cannot do any more public hellos this week. Out of politeness I should not comment further on that, plus I can presume their reasoning (viz. our show isn’t about saying hello to teenage viewers undergoing cancer treatments). I think Amber Bradley will be disappointed, and regular readers know what I think about . We’ll just have to be cleverer about slipping in our greetings, maybe rub our noses as a form of alert. Amber, we’ll figure out something!
   This Friday’s show is on , and whether we chaps are as good as the ladies. Charles, if you’re reading, and you are the Queer Chef, let us know your thoughts! I think we are.

Go for it!!! It's kind of weird but did you notice that despite the fact that women are associated with cooking but most of the best chefs in the world are dominated by men. Hmmmmm  
ooh I'm going to check out this show for sure, can't wait to see what you guys cook...what's your favourite meal Jack?  
surely pre-recorded shows woudl have less anxiety associated?

do you get to choose the recipies yourself?  
I can’t say much more after filming but I will say it was fun! Amy, I love Malaysian cuisine, especially the char kuay teow.
   Markoos, I prefer live because you get more of a buzz. There’s more to risk if it goes belly-up!
   And Charles, I raised that point today, but I am not sure if it was too popular!  
I agree re. the buzz of live TV - I used to work on a daily show that we also used to pre-record at times & the recorded shows always felt 'flatter'
I think it's all about that 'If I stuff up thousands will see it' that keeps you on-edge, thereby resulting in a tighter show  
That’s exactly it, Stickyweb. The only benefit to the pre-recording was that I was not zombie-like. I am usually too tired in the mornings (I finish at 3 a.m. usually, so an 8 a.m. start is not ideal) and the afternoon filming helped with my eyes staying open.
   And mate, welcome to coComment!
