"The more I learn about food, the more I realize that my favorite aspect has always been learning the root, origin, background and genesis of certain dishes and delicacies. I love the stories that food tells. As a longtime super-fan of the network, I'm beyond thrilled to partner with HISTORY on two series that speak to my passion of exploring the amazing stories of the edible world around us," said Adam Richman, author and travel/food TV host. "I can guarantee you won't look at many classic foods quite in the same way again. HISTORY has created two dynamic shows that pull the veil back on how and why certain brands and items that we know and love came to be, and has done it in a way that embraces the universal relatability and enjoyment of food. I'm truly honored that the network has trusted me to share these iconic food stories, and take them from their humble beginnings, through America's grocery aisles, to viewer's television screens."
