Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern

Premise
Possessed by a strong curiosity and, apparently, an even stronger digestive system, host Andrew Zimmern (a chef and food writer by trade) traverses the world in pursuit of unusual regional delicacies and startling native ``delights'' on the menu, as he tries to ferret out the weirdest foods a location has to offer -- possibly including ferret, actually. In addition to vivid descriptions of the taste and texture of the foods he discovers, Zimmern also provides a short history of each dish. Some of the locales Zimmern has traveled to include Ecuador, Taiwan, Iceland and Minnesota (because not all ``unique'' foods are found in exotic locations).
