Dara O'Briain visits Thanet Earth, a hi-tech greenhouse farm in Kent that grows millions of fruits and vegetables throughout the year- all without using soil. Then he heads to Texas, where a technique called "cloud seeding" is attempting to solve the problems of a five-year drought. Dara also experiments with a way of delivering flavors digitally using a receptor placed on the tongue. Also in this episode, Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett meets the U.S. Army food scientists who are looking to make food that lasts forever. In Australia, Chris Bavin visits a farm that uses robot labor, before trying out a seaweed pill that could prevent the body from absorbing fat. Finally, Dr. Shini Somara meets the robot waiters of Shanghai's hi-tech restaurants, enjoys a multi-sensory culinary experience, and tests the powers of the "Miracle Berry" for itself. Will it turn even the sourest of flavors into something sweet?
