There's a new series on the History Channel called Food Tech.


It comes on at 9 PM on Thursdays.

Has anyone seen an episode? These are the descriptions:

Food Tech: Cheeseburger & Fries
A cheeseburger and a side of fries--last year, Americans ate over 7  
billion of them. And there's an amazing story behind every one. Any  
idea how they get the sesame seeds to stick to the bun? What does it  
take to stuff 20 tomatoes inside a ketchup bottle? And what's the  
secret to getting the dill in dill pickle chips? Host Bobby Bognar  
sets off on a quest to find out, as he travels the country to unearth  
the hidden mysteries inside our cheeseburger and fries. It's the  
science behind perfectly melting cheese, the production of jet-black  
seeds that sprout into Spanish onions, and a French Fry factory where  
every day mountains of potatoes are sliced and diced in to 36 million  
French fries.

Food Tech: Chinese Take Out
Since an influx of Chinese immigrants to America in the mid 1800s,  
Americans have devoured Chinese take-out. But have you ever wondered  
what's really in an egg roll? What is the secret ingredient in beef  
and broccoli? And did you know a fortune cookie can actually make you  
rich? Host Bobby Bognar is off to the far reaches of America to find  
some ancient Chinese secrets. From the amount of salt in those hard to  
open soy sauce packets, to the waxing of Pekin Ducks, it's time for  
take out ...Chinese style.
