The Gourmet Dad BTS in L.A.

Behind the scenes, Clients, Location, Travel

A little while back, our crew had the pleasure of spending some time in L.A. with Dean McDermott (and Tori and the kids, of course) to shoot his new cookbook, The Gourmet Dad: Easy and Delicious Meals the Whole Family Will Love. 

Here are some behind-the-scenes shots from our time working on this awesome project between Toronto and Los Angeles. To our discovery, Dean is just as serious about hamming it up for the camera as he is about food.
