This four documentaries are a must watch for everybody. You don't need to be a foodie to appreciate the message behind it. My favorite still today is Black Coffee. Also check this Wednesday (10/28) on PBS Botany of Desire based on Michael Pollan's book The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World. The program shows "how four familiar species – the apple, the tulip, cannabis and the potato – evolved to satisfy our yearnings for sweetness, beauty, intoxication and control." "These are great winners in the dance of domestication," says Pollan. Narrated by Frances McDormand.
