Description

What connects the Matt Damon film - The Martian, A restauranter in Beijing and a lady who signs peans to a vegetable? Turns out, its the potato. From the most humble of vegetables, comes the story of China's sweeping ambition to change the food practices of a country which has grown addicted to meat. From Yunnan in the Southwest, to Gansu in the Northwest, across North China and into the Northeast, is the story of the potato, at the crossroads of cultural resistance and The Cultural revolution. Tune in, and discover why for contemporary China, potatoes could change the course of a nation.
