behind the scenes: Basics to Brilliance

  • This is Rob, my cameraman – he's also the one responsible for many of my fits of giggles during filming!

  • This is the dark chocolate and raspberry tart from episode 9 of the show – it was one of the crew's favourite day of filming (mine too!).

  • You caught me! Sneaking in a shot of the set for Instagram – you can follow me @donna.hay for more of my behind the scenes cooking pics!

  • Out of the kitchen for a change and soaking up the scenery... Sydney's stunning Bondi Beach at sunset.

  • Meet Wolfie, my director's dog who is a Schipperke/Pomeranian. He helped us out as an extra in some of the shots. Super cute!

  • Taking a peek at the shot of my rich chocolate truffles behind my cameraman, Warwick. How good to they look?!

  • This is my amazing Basics to Brilliance crew - thank you guys, it was so much fun!

Take a sneak peek into all the fun that happened behind the scenes of my new series, Basics to Brilliance. ‚ÄčI was lucky to have such a fabulous team from Foxtel who made filming my new series such a pleasure. We worked hard, but we had loads of laughs and I suspect they were the best-fed crew in television! D.x
