This fun and kooky travel show focuses on the eating adventures of a chef and professional traveler. Andrew Zimmern explores traditional cuisine in some exotic locales. However, as the name implies, Andrew doesn't eat tourist food. He eats the weirdest, most bizarre tastes he can discover. (Or at least the most bizarre by American standards).
The strength of this show is in its host. Andrew is not only brave, but tolerant. When he doesn't like a flavor, he claims it's "an acquired taste". He's very careful to stress that, what might seem bizarre to Western sensibilities, is commonplace in his destination.
Each episode blends Andrew's gentle sense of humor with his adventurous eating habits. He makes friends wherever he goes and manages to discover some truely unique recipes.
This is not a cooking show! It is definitely a travel show wit ha focus on flavor. But, you learn an amazing amount about a country's culture through its cuisine.
