DESCRIPTION:
(from Disney+'s press release, January 2021) Global superstar Keke Palmer (Disney+'s "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder") has been announced as host (and executive producer) of "Foodtastic," an unscripted build competition series for Disney+ where teams of contestants are challenged to create whimsical, larger-than-life, Disney-inspired works of art made out of all types of food including everything from cheese and butter to fruits and vegetables. NYC's City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera and FLOUR SHOP founder Amirah Kassem will serve as judges for "Foodtastic." The 11-episode series started production this week and is slated to premiere on Disney+ later this year. In each self-contained episode, three teams of food artists transform iconic characters into extravagant masterpieces that tell a story from Disney's legendary IP. These food sculptures will be judged purely on their design, technical skills and narrative, and not by taste. Unused food from each competition will be donated to local food banks.
