Cool Food Dude

27 02 2007

Sometimes, when you’re overcome by illness and have no other choice but to spend your day bundled up and sipping soup. You might also spend that sick day watching a lot of television like I did last evening. I was pleasantly suprised that the Travel Channel has an amazing new show “Bizare Foods with Andrew Zimmern“. The show seems like a brain child between the Travel Channel and the Food Network, following Zimmern to a regional location and watching him visit interesting sites and eating even more interesting foods.

The best thing about the show is Zimmern. He is larger frame man with bald head (i’ll have to send him a Destination-Nation Gift Box with the Route 95 New England Bald Head Wash) that has an iron stomach and he’s not pretentious or cocky about easting any of the bizarre items he comes across. And he comes across some very amazing foods in the episode I viewed he bit the head of a WHOLE fried baby chicken.Not all the food is one the Fear Factor vibe some of it is simple as those little shrimp chips you see in asian markets and wondered to yourself “people eat this?”. The show focuses on the region featured foods but also shows some of the regions interesting sites. Zimmern took viewiers to an underground river that reminded of yet another product carried by destination-nation (the devil’s icebox hairpaste).
