Credits : Producer/ Cinematographer

 

I found this story and went to shoot it in the South of France as a producer and cinematographer while working remotely with a Great Big Story producer in New York.

Sweet dreams are made of Pierre Lilamand’s candied fruit. He is the fifth-generation member of his family making this delectable treat in the quaint village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. The confectioner shows us how to preserve cantaloupe, apricots, strawberries, and oranges in sugar syrup. His recipes go way, way back—candied fruit fans Nostradamus and Olivier de Serres swore by them four centuries ago.
