The heart-breaking reason why this German celebrity chef served these doll-sized meals
Jan-Philipp Cleusters served tiny portions of his food at a Christmas market.
They may look like bite-sized portions, but the German chef who made them has a heart-breaking message to share about his creations.
Jan-Philipp Cleusters, who set up a dollhouse kitchen at a Christmas market, served up tiny portions of haute cuisine to passers-by.
What they didn’t know was that the miniature meals have about the same amount of calories as the daily food of a starving child in East Africa.
On learning the truth, one visitor said: “Shocking when you are shown how little it is.”
Another added: “It is alarming that there are people on this planet that need to live off so little.”
Cleusters said: “Christmas is the time for love. You don’t only care about yourself but also about people behind your horizon.
“And a campaign like this is so demonstrative that everyone understands.”
The film was sponsored by the charity Misereor, which helps the poor and the disadvantaged.
