I’ve had set catering ranging from cold takeout from The Olive Garden (AFI film) to gourmet cuisine from a three star Michelin chef (a commercial for Hummer). While the caterers on our show don’t have any stars to their name, they serve up an amazing array of delicious food.
Breakfast is where our caterer really shines. Unlike at lunch and dinner, there is no menu, you just ask for whatever your little heart desires and they whip it up for you on the spot. Whenever I roll up to the order window in the morning I always say the same thing: “One Gary’s Breakfast Bowl please.”
Gary’s Breakfast Bowl, or GBB, is your typical tofu scramble with tofu, spinach, various veggies, and a sesame/soy sauce. Its name comes from our first AD who insists the tofu scramble be served in a bowl so he can easily carry it while bossing everyone around on set.
I always mix in some of our caterer’s homemade pico de gallo to make a perfect little breakfast!
And just for kicks, here is the infamous George Maya chowing down on his breakfast sandwich:
