Back in March I had a meeting with a quite well known outdoor channel/internet show fishing expert. He has had his own show for many years and has revamped it a few times even having his grandsons join him. I am sure if y’all are into fishing shows you probably guessed I am talking about Gary Cooper of “Nice Fish”.

Gary and I became facebook friends and then we met face to face at the BC Sportsmen show in Abbortsford and a great friendship has developed. He liked my food pictures and he likes food and cooking and he knows I love fishing so I offered to cook for him and offered to take me fishing. Still waiting but I am patient cause something better is about to happen.

He chatted with me about a new concept he wanted to add to a new show he is developing. I was like okay cool idea, but never thought he meant me. So many other trained chefs out there. He said why not, I am what he is looking for, natural. I was like okay then. But like I said this was March.

Now in August Gary calls me up asking me to send him pictures of my kitchen. I ‘m like
?? He wants to see how my kitchen is set up. I mean come on I have the worlds smallest kitchen. But okay Gary, here is my kitchen. Thank goodness it was clean that day. He says to me later, not small we can fit a crew in there. Truly this man has never seen how I cook in my kitchen.

So here we are last week of October and I get text a couple days ago, call me when you get this message, Gary. ..... oh my so I call...... okay Ali are ya ready for this, be calm (pep talking myself)......... show’s a go, I need 13 (3-5 min) cooking tips, quick recipes, whatever ya got outdoors related) segments of you for the show in November..... um hello Gary November is next week. Yup, you me and a camera man.... send me your ideas and we’ll get R done.

There ya go, I am going to be on a new version of “Nice Fish” with Gary Cooper unless I die from being tongue tied cause my brain and mouth dont jive when they must talk publicly let alone TV. Goddess above what just happened. Put me on TV and I can dance no problem, Put me in an ice arena with 5 thousand people and I'll sing O Canada but make me talk ....... I'm going to totally Lucille Ball "oh Ricky WAAAAAAA"

Great opportunity ! :Oh Yeah!:

First saw a Gary Cooper production at a sport show in P.G. , I think it was on VHS :Maybe: A long time ago.

You will do fine , in your element , in your own kitchen !
Talent , skill and familiarity will rule the day.

Knock'm dead !

Make sure they get s few shots of the pantry.

You'll be great Allison. You'll have to do one with the Sous-vide. Appy's for camp side. Prepare ahead for hunting camp meals. You have so much to choose from.

Be careful what you wear or Peter will be having to fight off the hoards of admirers.

Mostly, have fun and you will kill it. Looking forward to seeing your debut.

You might have to do another printing of the cook book.

Ali there is only one problem. I don't get the show down here. How am I going to brag to everyone that I know a TV star when no one sees the show here. Congradulations.

Well there you go! We all knew you could pull it off. Good for you, and I'm happy
for you that you were able to have fun doing it. Doors might have been opened
a bit more for you....you never know what's around the next corner if you choose
to walk through that door.

Glad everything went well. The way things work for water would not boil. Congradulation on the new gig. Anything that looks or sounds new take a deep breath before you answer.
