I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Also, we have to remember
that this was being presented to the public...and most of the folks
viewing the program do not have anything like the knowledge and
expertise to be found on this list...especially when it comes to
historic cookery.

They talked about the differences of cinnamons, nutmeg as an hallucigen (which I had foundout in college... in the late 1960's), cloves, etc. The guy talking is the author of a book on the history of spices.

knowledge and wisdom to curiosity.
