The Food Disruptors launches with a deep-dive into wheat and its multi-faceted role in American foodways. Even you gluten-intolerants should listen up, because we’re going to learn why and how white bread became a cultural thing — first a positive, then decidedly déclassé.
Wheat in history also reveals how continuous industrial processing was born in America — it started at a small grist mill in the Delaware Valley and from that humble beginning unfurled America’s industrial dominion for two centuries.
Leading the way was a socially awkward, brilliant nerd: Oliver Evans, the most important innovator you never heard of.
