About Us

TWO KOOKIE GALS IN THEIR 60'S

  

Robin and Ally  met through Food Network, and a vibrant friendship was born. Ally spent the first half of her life as a psychologist, while Robin, a hairdresser, both dynamic platforms for endless conversation, but they each found it far more gratifying to arouse exciting visual storytelling over fabulous food. After all, it IS where people Conversate, Commiserate, and Communicate!

EVERYONE IS SPECIAL

We create stories and scenarios around everyday people, cook something special, and simply let the camera roll and capture unscripted stories, laughter, and a few morsels of good-ole-fashion wisdom.

EVERYWHERE IS OUR STAGE

Who needs a stage or a studio when beautiful eye-candy is all around us! Whether its an old tobacco barn picnic among friends, a marina tapas meal with a mix of generation hotties, or a roaring fire on a cold winter's day; there is a story to tell, something fabulous to eat, and lots of beauty to ignite the imagination. 

WHO ARE WE?

Food Network: The family that cooks together... Yep, that's us!

Everyone in my family cooks! Four generations of foodies (long before that was a thing), celebrate the making of our greatest memories in the kitchen and over a table of lively conversation. When the film-bug bit me, after appearing numerous times on Food Network, I realized that food was more than just something to eat, but rather the greatest lure of people. Laughter and stories come alive over a table of great food and ‘that’ for me, is where visual storytelling memories are made!


Once an Artist, always an Artist

Grandma Productions was created by Robin Daumit and from there, Peas and Carrots was born; a multi-generational platform for visual storytelling. Currently the wearer of All hats: Film, Sound, Set, Design, Dialog and Editing, Robin has a gazillion stories swimming in her head just waiting to come alive on film. She believes that while we are all as different as peas and carrots, the best portrayal of reality storytelling unfolds with a splash of laughter and lots of eye-candy! 

Ethnic diversity is Robin's secret to Beautiful food

image11

  

Raised in a Mediterranean influenced home, I learned to cook everything from scratch. My style of cooking evolved as I embraced numerous ethnic cultures into my life. I like for food to be healthy, beautiful, and edgy! I am not your “comfort food” gal. Having made nut milks long before they were ever found on grocery shelves, nuts and legumes into butters and pastes, long before America ever heard of hummus or almond butter, I have incorporated my old-world knowledge of food, into today’s trendy nouveau cuisines and published a cookbook you are sure to enjoy.
