Our previous series Global Food told in six episodes the stories of simple local dishes that have acquired a universal dimension and are now eaten the world over. Six unusual and unexpected destinies, punctuated with surprises, anecdotes and fascinating facts, carried by truculent characters and unexpected situations.
Pizza, sushi, French fries, pasta, sandwiches and ice cream may not make the most-balanced of six-course meals, but they’re perfect as a six-part series!
Quench your thirst with Global Drinks.
Global Drinks describes another aspect of universal nourishment: the liquid, hydrating aspect of our alimentation.
Global Drinks tells, in 6 x 52 minutes, the story of six drinks. Six surprising fates for non-alcoholic drinks that have managed to make themselves indispensable, almost “unavoidable” in our daily lives, with economic, industrial, sociological and cultural implications on a world-wide scale.
Tea, soda, fruit juice, milk, mineral water and coffee:
More than just simple beverages, traditions or local phenomena, they too have become icons in the global-village grocery store.
