American Eats is an American documentary series that aired on The History Channel from June to November 2006. The program follows in the footsteps of the earlier documentaries American Eats: History on a Bun and American Eats: More American Eats, both of which also aired on the History Channel. The series was produced by Atlas Media Corp.

Overview[edit]

The series examines the history of American cooking and foods. Each episode details the particular foods' origins, key innovators, history, and evolution into modern cuisine. The series is subtitled "The Food That Built America" due to its reverence for food's place in American history and its impact on culture. The show is known for its nostalgia and general quirkiness, often including facts such as "Did you know Teddy Roosevelt took over 500 gallons of beer on an African safari?"

Marathons of American Eats aired regularly on Thanksgiving from 2006 through 2009.
