  • Introduction
Nothing is too big for Greta Georges. In BIG FOOD she discovers what it takes to make, manage and move massive amounts of food. Travelling the globe in search of the giants of the catering world she goes behind the scenes at everything from a paella competition in Spain, to a free kitchen that feeds 80,000 people a day in Punjab, to a wedding for 1400 guests in Singapore. Seeing how these extraordinary events come together, Greta soon discovers that it’s back breaking work and any number of things can go wrong. In this episode, Greta learns that more than 80,000 people visit The Golden Temple at Amritsar in the north Indian state of Punjab every day. It is Sikhism’s holiest shrine and every visitor (regardless of caste, creed, race or religion) is welcome to eat at the temple’s langar or free kitchen. It is one of the largest free kitchens in the world and can feed 3,000 people every 15 minutes. Greta is overwhelmed by the efficiency of the kitchen despite the fact that it is largely staffed by an ever changing army of volunteers.
