This series of lectures feeds your mind, examining food production, preparation, and enjoyment from prehistoric times to the present. Each lecture is about 30 minutes and covers a specific region or topic, such as the origin of sushi or the reasons behind kosher cookery. Ken Albala speaks a little rapidly on occasion, but he is passionate, humorous, and erudite.
