Did Cooking Make Us Human?

YEAR: 2010 | LENGTH: 1 part (60 minutes)

DESCRIPTION: We are the only species on earth that cooks its food – and we are also the cleverest species on the planet. The question is: do we cook because we’re clever and imaginative, or are we clever and imaginative because our ancestors discovered cooking?

Horizon examines the evidence that our ancestors’ changing diet and their mastery of fire prompted anatomical and neurological changes that resulted in taking us out of the trees and into the kitchen. – source
