E09 The One with the Nightshades

Deadly nightshades. In the Kitchen. Will Maddy make it out alive?

It seems like familiar foods have always been around, right? It might surprise students to learn that, in the scheme of things, some foods are remarkably recent inventions. Others – the world travellers – have come a long way and look very different to the way they did originally. In this clip, Maddy learns how nightshades made their way around the world, from tomatoes to tomatillos. This clip is also great for Music and/or English lessons around poems, rhythms and beats.
