DESCRIPTION

Nat Geo People presents the comprehensive food story we have all been craving: EAT: The Story of Food, satisfies every question you have ever had, and some you have not, about the evolution of food over the course of humankind, from our ancestors throwing raw meat onto a fire for the first time, to teams of lab technicians perfecting the crunch of a potato chip. More importantly, it will show how this evolution of what we eat, and how we eat it, has actually defined human civilization and cultures around the globe.

From the way Spam helped defeat Hitler, to how sausage spread the Roman Empire, to how spices created the global economy, EAT: The Story of Food leaves no morsel of information on the plate. Each of the six one-hour episodes is centred on a different theme: food revolutionaries, meat, sugar, seafood, junk food and grains. Throughout the episodes an incredible group of food ambassadors share their personal stories and reflections on food, not just looking back at history but looking forward to the future, and at the cultural impact of our food consumption.
