For an episode of Bravo’s reality series Top Chef we created the holidays in the middle of an August heat wave thanks to Hollywoodspecial effects. The Chefs challenge was to create an elegant cocktail party for 200 all from two food trucks. The chefs drew knives and dived into two teams and quickly began cooking for the two buffets. Meanwhile, it began to snow with special machines utilizing biodegradable paper for ground coverage (it melts always when hosed), and snowflakes falling from the rooftops created from soap. Brownstone Street became a winter wonderland within hours.
