Summary: In this revelatory series farmer Jimmy Doherty travels the globe to find out why the price of our food is spiraling out of control. Focusing on one meal in each episode - breakfast, lunch and dinner - Jimmy uncovers why staple ingredients we take for granted are increasing and why the era of cheap food may be over for good. He finds out how extreme weather in America is affecting the cost of a loaf of bread, why China's growing middle classes are making the ham sandwich more expensive and why, in the future, the price of oil might drive up the price of your cornflakes.
Language Note: In English.
