      • Narrator: Did you know that the sandwich was invented by a compulsive gambler? That the Chinese fortune cookie is not from China? That the first hamburgers were thought to contain body parts? Since the earliest days Americans have collected recipes from far flung lands, then we season and spice, bake and broil, simmer and scorch and we reinvent. From cultures around the world we gathered our favorite foods and made them our own. Hot dogs and ice cream cones, hamburgers and pizzas, fried chicken and the sandwich, the foods we eat have become emblems of America itself. They're fast, fun and a little funky. They're mass produced and custom made. And each food has an amazing story to tell.
