[edit] Information

Jimmy’s Food Factory Season 2 Jimmy's Food Factory is back to unravel the secrets of supermarket food. Farmer Jimmy Doherty sets up his own food factory in a barn. Using farmyard and household junk, he is creating his own supermarket production line to find out what they are really doing to our food.

[edit] Pub Grub

In the first programme Jimmy 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. And Jimmy turns detective to find out how they stop imposters ending up in our packets of peanuts.

[edit] Food in a Flash

In this episode, 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', and in a microwave-rice factory, Jimmy discovers how they can guarantee their pre-cooked rice is safe to eat. He also joins a lettuce grower to see how technology protects his fragile crop from the extremes of the British weather.

[edit] Get Up and Go

In this episode, Jimmy makes breakfast with a bang when he uses a specially built cannon to create puffed rice cereal. And he finds out that pedal power is essential when you're trying to make peanut butter on an industrial scale. At a yogurt factory, there's an invisible, unpaid workforce of billions to help Jimmy make his own strawberry yogurt. And tea is Jimmy's favourite drink - he has fifteen cups a day! So he's in heaven when he visits a tea factory to find out how the chief tea taster makes sure every cuppa tastes as good as the last.

[edit] 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. Part of the lure of chocolate is its glossy appearance, and so Jimmy heads off to discover how factories make it so shiny people can't resist. And people might love the taste, but nobody likes the way onions make you cry. So Jimmy meets a farmer who's harvesting a no-cry onion - will it end in tears?

[edit] Packed Lunch

Jimmy lifts the lids on the secrets in your lunch box. To find out the difference between freshly squeezed apple juice and juice made from concentrate, he adapts a lawn mower and a mangle with some inspiration and perspiration. What do they do to extra light mayo to cut the calories? Jimmy fakes the fat with the help of some rotting cabbages and slime. And he visits a monster greenhouse to find out why cucumbers in the supermarket are perfectly straight. Ever wondered how your biscuit get the perfect crunch? Jimmy visits the biggest custard cream factory in the country to investigate.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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 what the food takeaways give away for free. Jimmy likes his curry spicy hot, and he discovers just how hot it has to be to last for two years in our cupboards. And he meets a broccoli farmer to see why he's in such a hurry to cool off.

[edit] Party Party

Farmer Jimmy Doherty reveals the secrets of supermarket food. Jimmy creates his own kids' party menu. When it comes to making fish fingers, a power saw is Jimmy's choice as he works out how the food factories try to make frozen fish taste as good as fresh. Jimmy also makes pink, fluffy marshmallows. But there's nothing very pink or fluffy about the ingredients which include pig skin and trotters. He also visits a factory where they produce fifteen thousand mini rolls an hour to discover how they roll them all without cracks. Jimmy meets a raspberry grower who wants to reduce the amount of pesticide he uses to protect his delicate crop from bugs. So what's a huge hair dryer got to do with it?
