Food Detectives

Hosted by Ted Allen

Smells Delicious

This week, Ted Allen subjects the food techs to a taste test to find out how much your sense of taste relies on smell. Will they be able to tell apple from potato without the help of their eyes and nose? And, you might not think of fried food as “healthy”, but how fattening is it? And what is the healthiest oil to fry with? Finally, is it really true that wood cutting boards harbor more bacteria than their plastic counterparts? We’ll cut to the truth, on Food Detectives.
