Trying to get a certain look

It was a toss up whether to put this here or in the fcp forum as some of this may be better achieved in post.

I'm going to be shooting a cooking video and want a particular look. I like the look of the Pioneer Woman cooking show on Food Network. It has what I call a natural look to it. I know there's some color grading involved. Any other ideas of how to achieve this look?

I've never seen the show, but looking at some pics online, these are my first thoughts:

Get yourself a few large softboxes and use 5600K lamps. Place the majority of them on one side of your set, and one or two (depending on your size/location) on the other side to fill in some of the shadows.

If you wanted to get really fancy, you could place a 5600K spot behind a "window" off screen, so it would throw the window frame shadow on the wall. Make sure it's dimmable, though, so you can control how bright the "sun" is. If you go overboard, it'll look fake!

Good luck!

Just did a little more digging, and ran across this BTS video. Right after the introduction, they show a shot of the crew setting up in front of a GIGANTIC wall of windows. If you've got that much natural light, good on you! If not, my previous post is the way to go!
