Priya Krishna is the latest Bon Appetit star to announce she will no longer be working with the platform following issues over fair pay and her contract.
She explained: ‘I am leaving Bon Appetit video. When I was first asked to do videos in the test kitchen in 2018, the opportunity was presented as great publicity for my upcoming cookbook.
‘I wasn’t paid at first. In 2019, I asked to be compensated, and was offered what I was told was the standard rate, which amounted to about $300 per video, for several hours of work.
‘I later found out that some of my colleagues were making many, many times this amount for doing video, while others were receiving no additional compensation for video.’
She added that she had voiced her complaints that non-white members of the test kitchen were ‘tokenised’ and not given equal opportunities, which she says were ignored.
