The Incredible Edible WHAAAT?

[youtube s31nWSiminI]
My coworker is literally obsessed with the Travel Channel’s show Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Have you seen this show? It’s crazy! Basically, chef/food critic/and blogger Andrew Zimmern travels around the world to places “discovering authentic experiences” by eating local dishes that us Americans would consider vomit worthy! But the dishes he eats are considered delicacies in countries he visits. Seriously, every day my coworker tells me about Andrew’s adventures in eating something unfathomable – would you try steamed fertilized duck eggs, (which is basically an egg with the bird inside – and you eat it, beak feathers and all! AHHHH!) How about bull testicles? Or Lamb ear fat???

    “the Philippines is a spicy chex mix of landscapes and locales” what a great thing to say.

    oh sweet Jesus, that’s disgusting. I mean, if it tastes just like a hard boiled egg, why not just eat a hard boiled egg instead of an aborted chicken?

    Am I the only one who thinks of Zimmern as the fat kid from the school cafeteria who would eat anything anyone dared him to?

    Zero interest in this show.

    You should see the epi when Zimmern eats in New York City with Bourdain. It was a gross-out pissing contest.
    I was nauseated after watching him in Morocco. And Alaska.

    I know enough guys who served in the PI that I’d basically have to try balut if I ever came across a fresh (sort of) batch.

    Least he hasn’t sold out like Fieri …yet. Actually, his show from Minn, his home state was pretty good, what with a down home smoked fish seller, and a pie cafe, although it was SAUERKRAUT pie. Leave it on the dog, man.
