THE ORIGIN OF FOOD is a documentary series about the scientific, cultural and historical development of food. Every 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 in the late fifteenth century to the alteration of wheat in Mexico which ended up saving a billion lives. And from the dark history of coffee to the high-tech experimental greenhouses around the globe. The series blends science, nature and cultural stories into an exciting feast for the eyes. 

With humor, unique insights and culture clashes the series delivers a surprising and engaging testimony of human progress and a celebration of our unique part in nature.
