      • Narrator: Together they determine the flavor of the American century. They mixed American abundance with a smattering of science, a big helping of technology and a pinch of old fashioned shrewdness. And they utterly reinvented eating. A fur trader who would dine on practically anything would notice that meat frozen at near arctic temperatures tasted great. A gourmet chef who believed in canned food and who changed his name to stop people from mispronouncing it. And a devoted nutritionist who didn't think to highly of modern cooking and who believed that most diseases could be traced to the kitchen. These are the stories of the Americans who put the food on your table. An extraordinary gang of inventors and innovates, experimenters, gamblers and visionaries who seized their moment and rewrote the American recipe book. The creators of American Eats.
