Burt Wolf: What We Eat
Series Description: In BURT WOLF: WHAT WE EAT, Burt Wolf travels through the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the United States to commemorate the 500th anniversary of an era that sowed the most important seeds of change. With the help of some of the world's leading experts, he uncovers how the migrations of people, plants and animals that started between 1492 and 1502 continue to impact the culture, economics and the diet of the world today. From the introduction of horses, cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens into the New World, to the exportation of spices, corn, potatoes, chocolate, peanuts, Chile peppers, tomatoes and beans to Europe and beyond, these exchanges continue to have profound effects on the daily lives of people and societies everywhere.
