Around here, that's not a major issue. No bears, so the only critters that might come around are racoons, possums, foxes, or coyotes.
Not really much fear of those sniffing around...once they get a whiff of the person in the hammock, they're usually gone in a shot anyway.
I don't think my style of cooking really lends itself to transferring smell... I cook with a canister stove and pretty much just boil water. I likely would not eat in my hammock incase I ever spilled my food. I have never taken food of any kind into my tent and I don't plan to start with my hammock. I also don't plan to do this on a regular occasion, but if it's raining I probably will.
