|Summary:|| This cutting-edge series reveals the awe-inspiring future of tomorrow's food. With amazing innovations and jaw-dropping advances from around the world that will soon be on our doorstep - from future-facing farms whose crops never see daylight to space-age supermarket aisles and restaurants staffed by robots. We're living in a world where computers can give us brand-new taste sensations; where our burger is more likely to come from a petri dish or an insect farm than a field and where 3D printing could transform the way we cook. This eye-opening series will change the way we think about the food we grow, buy and eat - now and in the future. Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett tackles sell-by dates with the US military, greengrocer Chris Bavin heads to Australia to see the world's leading robotic farm, technology expert Shini Somara is in Shanghai, where she's immersed in the restaurant of the future, and Dara is in Britain's largest hi-tech farm to see the secret of growing hundreds of thousands of tonnes of fruit and veg - without any soil.
