All of you who have appreciation for Chinese food will certainly enjoy this 7 episode TV series about Chinese food. All episodes can be downloaded (HD, 720p) from Youtube and it can be watched both in English and Chinese.

Here is the text from Wikipedia:

A Bite of China (Chinese: 舌尖上的中国; pinyin: Shéjiān shàng de Zhōngguó) is a 2012 Chinese documentary television series on the history of food, eating, and cooking in China directed by Chen Xiaoqing (陈晓卿) and narrated by Li Lihong (李立宏). It first appeared at the China Central Television in May 14th, 2012, and quickly gained much popularity. Having started filming in March 2011, this seven-episode documentary series introduces the history and story behind foods of various kinds in more than 60 locations all around China. The documentary has also been actively encouraged as a means of introducing Chinese food culture to those unfamiliar with local cuisine.
