Jimmy's Food Factory
Avsnitt 1 - Pub Grub
Farmer Jimmy Doherty makes some pub grub classics. Using a high-powered spud gun, Jimmy gets explosive results when he tries to make oven chips. Creating chicken kievs proves messy when he makes a home-made meat processing machine from an old car tyre. To complete his pub menu, Jimmy discovers how a farm boss, who produces 480,000 sirloin steaks every year, makes sure every steak is tender and juicy.
Avsnitt 2 - Food in a Flash
Jimmy tries out some of the technological tricks the food factories use to make food that's quick and easy to prepare. Turning a fire extinguisher into a squirty cream canister, Jimmy squeezes out the secrets of the cream you don't need to whip. A mangle and an office shredder come in handy when he tries to work out what makes instant noodles `instant'.
Avsnitt 4 - Love or Loathe
Jimmy creates the foods that provoke extreme reactions, and nothing divides the nation more than yeast extract. To find out the factory's secrets, Jimmy must force all his yeast cells to self-destruct, but they aren't playing ball. People either love it or hate it, but is chewing gum a food? Jimmy has one of the most bizarre lists of ingredients ever as he tries to make his own.
Avsnitt 5 - Packed Lunch
Jimmy lifts the lids on the secrets in the lunch box. He adapts a lawn mower and a mangle to find out the difference between freshly squeezed apple juice and juice made from concentrate. He also uses some rotting cabbages and slime to replicate what is done to make extra light mayonnaise, and visits a massive greenhouse to find out why supermarket cucumbers are perfectly straight.
Avsnitt 6 - Roast Dinner
Jimmy makes Sunday lunch from scratch. He tries to create the potato flakes that make instant mash. Like the factory, he uses a drum dryer to dehydrate his potatoes - but is his flame-thrower too powerful for the job? And how do the food factories get the caffeine out of coffee? To find out, Jimmy makes his own decaf coffee using a fish tank.
Avsnitt 7 - Hot and Cold
Jimmy looks at how food factories use extreme temperatures to create our everyday foods. By turning down the temperature, Jimmy makes soft-serve ice-cream and uncovers something unexpected about the ice-cream van favourite. Using heat and a high-pressure crusher, he makes one of the weirdest snacks around - prawn crackers, and he finds that it takes a lot of effort to make the food takeaways give away free.
