South 2 North--The Food Show

From Al Jazeerra in Africa comes this lovely show on food culture, nutrition and other such ideas.

The show opens with a nutritionist who's "seen the light!"Someone more cynical than I might suggest that his last book had fallen off the bestseller list and he needed a new one to get back on the curcuit.... but that's not me. Anyway, Professor Tim Noakes tries out a high-fat "paeleo" diet.
A chef can be heard cooking up a storm behind the interview with Dr. Noakes: it's Dorah Sithole, one of the great exponents of South African cuisine.
And the show wraps with Justice Malala, who discusses food culture and political culture. As usual, Al Jazeera cooks up a heck of a show.
