This program finds out how in just 30 years North American diners have gone from “Yuk! I’m not eating that!” to “Guess what I ate last night!” Our penchant for the exotic has buoyed a booming global food trade and a modern food-processing industry. Yet despite all this passion for food, fewer and fewer of us can actually cook. Eating out and ordering in have become so common, we’ve almost done away with a once-sacred ritual: family dinner.
