Season 4 brought an incredible amount of adventure and diversity to Kelsey’s Essentials. I can’t wait for this season to air! From urban rooftop bee keeping to cooking with NFL football players… I’d say you’re all in for some great episodes! Here are just a few highlights from the season:
We spent an entire day taste testing at Coney Island trying to perfect fair food favorites. The experience gave the phrase “sugar high” a whole new meaning. Funnel cakes, cotton candy, and hot dogs galore!
I spent a day with superstar center for the New York Jets Nick Mangold cooking up a storm with him in his home kitchen. It was a learning experience for both of us as we both shared some of our favorites. In true football player form, I learned that Nick can put down a whole lot of (healthy) food before a big game!
Who knew local honey was being produced in my own neighborhood in Brooklyn?! I got up close and personal with honeybees and learned the ins & outs of this ancient craft from an incredible beekeeper who is producing “liquid gold” for restaurants all over New York City. I’ll never feel the same way about honey again…
Another unique thing that I’ll never forget about season 4 was filming with my baby bun in the oven. I was between 5-6 months pregnant while filming and had a growing bump as proof. You’ll be sure to spot my belly when the episodes air! Stay tuned for air dates and more info. in the coming weeks.
