"It was really exciting because I didn't think anybody was going to see it, and we had leveraged a lot by making it," Vivian says. "When you're filming, in your restaurant, a tv show, and there's no home for it, it doesn't really make sense that you'd be making a tv show, your diners look at you like you're insane. Your staff, whose job is made more difficult because you're in their workspace filming, is disgruntled. We had assumed tremendous exposure based on filming with my family and filming in our business, and to hear that it was going to have a platform was tremendous."

The idea for A Chef's Life came before the accolades, however. Howard and Knight started working with Durham filmmakers Cynthia Hill and Rex Miller soon after the restaurant opened, raising money with the Southern Documentary Fund as their fiscal sponsor. Hill, who is the show's director and producer, is also a native of eastern North Carolina, which she has featured in past films.
