PBS Meaning of Food

Did anyone else catch the first episode of the PBS series "The Meaning of Food"? It's a three-part series hosted by Marcus Samuelsson that presents stories illustrating various ways food reaches into all aspects of our lives. The first episode had the following (and I'm forgetting some);
Recipes shared by the women prisoners at Auchwitz
A minister who prepares last meals for death-row inmates
A man opening a new restaurant as part of his recovery from losing his wife
An American Muslim teenage girl fasting for Ramadan for the first time
An Indian ritual that honors sons-in-law with an elaborate feast

I really enjoyed it and recommend it highly as an antidote to the Food TV drivel so often bemoaned 'round these parts...
