#105 Fourth of July
Main Street, the Fishermen's Museum, and The Dudley, a charter boat.
Lady Liberty Seafood Salad
Shortcake with Raspberries
In a small waterside town, were parades and fishing trips are a
standard part of community life, John celebrates the Fourth of July
with a local family.
This was the very first show taped--and it would be more than a
year later before the rest of the series would begin taping again.
Taped for a pilot episode to test the waters, John and the crew
passed with flying colors. Everyone thinks that we "fixed"
the contest where Beverley wins by catching the first fish because
we had the camera on her when she does. The answer: no, we didn't,
just a lucky coincidence. Here's a secret: the recipes were taped
in the winter (which is why the shortcake isn't with strawberries),
a year after the b-roll was shot! The original recipes had technical
glitches, so we had to re-shoot.
