Abstract:

"Andrew Zimmern, the host of the Travel Channel's hit series 'Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern", has an extraordinarily well-earned reputation for traveling far and wide to seek out and sample anything and everything that is consumed as food globally, from cow-vein stew in Bolivia and giant flying ants in Uganda to raw camel kidneys in Ethiopia, putrefied shark in blood pudding in Iceland ... For Zimmern, local cuisine--bizarre, gross, or downright stomach turning, as it may be to us-- it is not simply what's served at mealtime. It is a primary avenue to discovering what is most authentic--the bizarre truth--about cultures everywhere ..."--Jacket.
