When Columbus made landfall in 1492, it was as if two worlds collided and the seams of the ancient supercontinent of Pangea would be re-knit by maritime commerce. Join Dr. Freedman for a colorful and fascinating look at the origins and odysseys of foods of the world, from pineapple, peppers, peanuts, tomatoes, potatoes (which changed the world!), to sugar (a bittersweet story), coffee, chocolate, and more.
