This morning an interesting question was answered in the Dutch NewsPaper NRCNext. Manus Groenen from Utrecht asked:
‘Who eats the food from cooking shows?’
Hanina Ajarai, from the newspaper, sorted it out for us: 1. The jury tastes a lot and competitors taste each others food. 2. The crew get’s it. And, 3, a lot of food is donated to wellfare organisations, who distribute it to the homeless, orphans and the elderly. – But unfortunately most of the time, the food isn’t eatable anymore, because of the long hours of shooting.
Here is the complete story, in Dutch, by Hanina Ajarai: http://www.nrcnext.nl/blog/2011/07/13/next-question-wie-eet-het-eten-uit-kookprogrammas/Url:
