Did any of you watch Heston's Mission Impossible? I came across it on the Channel 4 website: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/hestons-mission-impossible/episode-guide/series-1 Essentially, for anyone who hasn't seen it, his task was to look at some of the appalling food that's served in places like hospitals and on airplanes and devise ways to improve it that would be acceptable, not only to the people who eat it, but to the people that cook and prepare it. Whether or not you'd care to try out some of his ideas yourself, I found the series fascinating from the background info and conditions that cause the food to be so dire. In the case of British Airways, as we know, the food is all cooked on the ground then reheated on the plane. At the point it leaves the kitchen it didn't look too bad, but by the time it is served it's dire. What goes wrong? In the case of the Alder Hey Childrens Hospital episode, the sick patients wouldn't eat anything because they couldn't stand the food. The Hospital has it's own kitchen with 6 cooks but the only cooks doing any proper cooking worked on dishes for the staff canteen. Everything being served to the patients came out of a packet things like frozen pizza. Only two of the cooks were allocated to preparing the food for 250 patients. The last edition looked at cooking on a nuclear submarine. The budget the chefs have to work within to feed each crew member 3 meals a day was about £2.34. The submarine will be at sea for 90 days before it can restock, so fresh food runs out very quickly and the rest of the time they live off frozen and canned food. Have a look if, like me, you missed it on the box.
