"Sunshine Cuisine"
PBS Network

 

Sunshine Cuisine was carried on 179 television stations nationwide, including the top 25 television viewing markets, for a total of eighty shows.

required working appliances, including gas piped in from external tanks and practical sinks and faucets in studios with no existing drains or water. Waste water was collected in holding tanks under the sink, filtered and pumped out. Hot water heaters were also in the set for the automatic dish washer and clothes washer for table cloths, aprons and kitchen towels. For finished product shots we used a side set as well as a sweep light table.





In the great tradition of legendary PBS cooking shows, "Sunshine Cuisine" represents the gold standard of television production in this genre.

"Sunshine Cuisine " was difficult to produce, even for a cooking show. The shooting schedule began with morning prep, after which was a straight run through, live on tape. After pickups, the production moved to product shots of the finished dishes. This required elaborate "vignettes" consisting of props and table settings on a swept light table top and other effects.

These cooking shows required working appliances, including gas piped in from external tanks and practical sinks and faucets in studios with no existing drains or water. Waste water was collected in holding tanks under the sink, filtered and pumped out. Hot water heaters were also in the center island counter as well as a practical sink and cook top. Behind the set is a full prep kitchen with refrigerators, stoves, prep tables, automatic dish and clothes washers. Hot water heaters are also needed for prep area and waste water was collected in holding tanks under the sink, filtered and pumped out.
