We filmed this episode in June 2009 (aired in November), while I was 6 months pregnant with my first born. It was a long day - 12 hours all up to prep and shoot 43 minutes of footage (which feels like double that when you're homing in on your third trimester!). Sore feet aside, it was an incredible experience. Vinny Garcia, who sadly passed away in 2013, was a delight to work with - a crazy talented and lovely guy, who was by far the biggest Simpsons fan of all the chefs.
