About Food Wonders
FOOD WONDERS is an open exploration of food and culture. Food is part of our daily lives and it’s very easy to take it for granted. Yet food actually is the perfect tool to understanding what and who we are, where we come from, and what we like, among many other things.
Cooking is much more than following a recipe. It is a process, an origin, a tradition, a cultural element. It is a form of artistic expression, a sublime human way of transforming the environment into edible art that becomes part of us and transforms us. People are continuously fascinated by food, as evidenced in the prolific amount of media–whether magazine, newspaper, TV or radio– that have been dedicated to communicating about food.
Throughout the FOOD WONDERS television show, we will explore the world through food.
Food will be our guide and our center of attention; it will take us to the source and soul of the culture that we are studying.
We will travel the world through the eyes of food.
