Michelle Mason of Indialantic has been to the Scott’s restaurant a dozen or so times since it opened and says it was always fantastic. She says she has come to a whole new appreciation of Chef Scott since she started watching the streaming videos. “I always liked him,” she said with a giggle, but now “I love, LOVE, love him!” She’s watched about 15 or 20 episodes and her process has also evolved.
“I went from trying to cook along with Scott to realizing how marvelously skilled he is… he makes it look so easy, chatting and cracking jokes while he’s cooking while I am frantically rushing around my kitchen trying to keep up with him,” she said.
Now, Michelle sits down with a glass of wine to watch and comment on the episodes as they stream live, then goes back later to cook them at her own pace, able to stop the show or back up the tape when she needs more time to work out the process.
She also appreciates the access: “It’s like getting a backstage pass into a place you may not be able to go to all the time. And, you don’t have to give up a whole evening to learn something new,” she said, noting the 20 minutes, more or less, of actually cooking time.
