What are the biggest misunderstandings about cafeteria

The television broadcast via the canteen at the Comenius School shows that there have been misunderstandings. Frank Rosin himself succumbed to the greatest.

Mücka was on television on Tuesday - with the fourth episode of the television show "Rosins Kantinen". And that during the best movie time on Kabel Eins. The odds are good that evening. There was a crunch behind and in front of the scenes on different levels. Frank Rosin, for example, is often in the mood for dubious jokes on the show that aren't just aimed at the kitchen staff. That works well on TV. But it also has consequences for the people in Mücka. What is bad is that an outsider cannot understand the conflicts he sees on television. When Frank Rosin tells the friends' association, the kitchen team, the assembled parents and the community in front of the camera that they don't play a role in his show, from his point of view this is consistent and the credo of the show. Because it's about the children and their food. But a lot of other people have something to do with the problem of good or not good food in Mücka. Before rosin - and especially afterwards. Only a section of reality flickers over the screen.

At first it looked as if everything had been settled: Headmaster Torsten Weiß spoke to the operator of the cafeteria, Eva-Maria Ertel, in advance - even before he even contacted the production company for the show. Then the editor of the show came alone and later a team of four who looked at the premises. Of course, every person who is supposed to appear in front of the camera has also given written consent. So far everything is transparent. “Nobody put the kitchen team under pressure,” comments Torsten Weiß. “The production department paid particular attention to Ms. Ertel's health. The decision to quit was also accepted. ”The problems lie elsewhere. Because the spatial conditions in the canteen are anything but ideal. Fresh cuisine is hardly possible without the possibility of cooling. The low price of a meal has also been a factor limiting the ingredient list. All of this is not just the responsibility of the operator and her team. But on the show it looks exactly like that.

Now the technical and structural changes have been implemented. Mayor Markus Kiese sees this as a positive aspect. “I also think the improvements have been good for the school,” he says. For him, the whole problem of the food supply and the health of Eva-Maria Ertel was not given enough attention in the program. He is not happy with the situation that has now arisen. However, the show is broadcast and will be repeated on December 6th.

The mayor has already noted that the consequences had to be considered in advance. The show was only interested in the food. And the way in which this happened follows a certain dramaturgy. “I've had a lot to do with television, I knew what to expect,” he adds. "The problem with programs like this is that they come to a place where they don't know the situation at all."

This is exactly what Rosin freely admits. In the magazine immediately after "Rosins Kantinen" he describes his experiences in Mücka in detail. Here he says that he cannot see through which interests were represented at the parents' meeting. He felt like he was in the dock. He's certainly not alone in this. Because he spoke to the kitchen team in a similar way - openly, directly and with his own goals in mind. The fact that the arguments of his antagonists and opponents do not seem valid to him is due to the fact that they can only be understood from the relationships in the place - and not only have to do with the pure culinary art. This also explains why Markus Kiese was personally attacked on social networks after Frank Rosin referred to him as a brake on the action in his comment.

Whether he wanted it or not, Frank Rosin hit a wasp's nest with his relief operation. The representations in the show itself are moderate for a show of this format. Consideration was also given to Eva-Maria Ertel. The fact that she does not want to comment on the broadcast in the short term also says a lot about the consequences of the broadcast.
