Behind the Scenes With Michael Schwartz on the Today Show

Yesterday we brought you video of Michael's Genuine Food & Drink's Michael Schwartz on the Today show, and now we bring you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the shoot.

Chef Schwartz prepared two dishes: caramelized onion dip with fresh-cut potato chips and his homemade ricotta crostini with apricot-thyme jam. Unfortunately, Schwartz wasn't given enough time to complete the second dish, even with host Natalie Morales's attempts at stretching the clock. Fret not, fans, you can consult your trusty Michael's Genuine Food cookbook (or Today's website) for detailed recipes of the day's dishes.

Good TV is all about planning. Don't forget to water the flowers.

And... action! Looks like Schwartz found his shirt just in time.

The magic of TV -- if only it were that easy.
