Adam Richman has always been curious. He has long pondered food stories and histories, from why marinara is named for fishermen, even though there is no fish in it, to why "chicken mull" is only made within a 20 mile radius of a town in North Carolina.
He recalls, "I once saw a culinary anthropologist on a program on public television. As someone who has a background in political science, history and sociology, I loved the idea that food could be much more than nourishment or sustenance. It could be part of the story of a people or a subset within them. A dish, a crop, a particular type of fowl, fish or livestock could be [not just] something that we consume, but rather part of the double helix that makes up the DNA and cultural DNA of a people."
With this in mind, Richman writes about these food histories in his book, America the Edible and now takes on a new genre of food stories in his new show, Fandemonium. On Fandemonium, the culinary culture of fans differ around the country from event to event. Richman tells the food stories of some of America's biggest super fans and explores the lengths to which the fans go to celebrate at their event of choice.
