Camera Crews and Corn Nuts

by in View All Posts, February 19th, 2009

Here’s a little tip for any viewers out there that might someday have an opportunity to screen test for the Food Network: Pick a demo recipe that includes corn nuts as one of the ingredients.  Today, we were all huddled in Studio B for talent tests, freezing and hungry, and running behind schedule. 

As luck would have it, our test subject whipped up a delicious salad topped with those crunchy golden nuggets of corn goodness.  And I discovered that no one can resist corn nuts!  The extra tub of corn nuts that we wouldn’t need for the shoot was gone within minutes, as everyone tried their best to crunch quietly in the background.  Ah, corn nuts, the ultimate in studio mood elevators.

    Tv Crews are always hungry. I know from esperience. I used to work at a TV station that aired a cooking program. No sooner that shoot was done, there were hands on those plates, no matter what was in them.

    Corn Nuts are a lot like cheese…They make everything taste better! Great idea to add them into a salad! Is there a new FN Star we should be on the look out for?

    Does anyone remember that episode of Semi-homemade Cooking when the host referred to Corn Nuts as Acorns while making a Kwanzaa cake?
