Please Do Not Touch!

by in View All Posts, May 22nd, 2009

I’ll admit. I occasionally nibble at the Whole Foods buffet before paying, you know, to test out my options. And of course, my hands find their way into many a platter here at FN, which might be a bit on the restricted side. But when my handy little camera caught this warning: Ultimate Recipe Showdown Pantry. Please Do Not Touch!, I knew better than to pick, but not even a few exclamation points can keep SC from prodding for answers.

What did I find out? The test kitchens are in the midst of testing recipes for the new series, as the sign indicated, Ultimate Recipe Showdown. Apparently thousands of submissions came in from all over the country, and now the FN recipe testers have to narrow each category (comfort foods, hot & spicy, desserts, etc..) down to just 4 contestants for each show. By the looks of the pantry (dark chocolate chips, boxes of brown sugar, molasses, cupcake tins…), I think they’re in the middle of testing for the desserts episode. Maybe they need help taste testing? I’m available!

    Hmmm … hey now SC. I don’t see any special ingredients from MY submitted recipes there. Something’s wrong with that picture!
    How fun! FN Kitchens, cook up a storm and pick some good recipes (again) for the upcoming season! And best of luck to the competitors, whoever they may be. :-)
