The origin of food
“The Origin Of Food” is a documentary series about the scientific, cultural and historical development of food. In each episode, Dutch scientist Hidde Boersma and his best friend, filmmaker Karsten de Vreugd, uncover the unknown stories behind a certain type of food. From the arrival of tomatoes in Europe at the end of the 15th century to the modification of wheat in Mexico that ended up saving a billion lives. And from the dark history of coffee to high-tech experimental greenhouses around the world. The series blends science, nature and cultural stories in a feast for the eyes. With humor, unique viewpoints and cultural clashes, the series offers a surprising and captivating testament to human progress and a celebration of our unique role in nature.
