      For this episode of Pressure Cook, Ralph will be dropped off in a country whose culinary achievements rival its reputation as a resort getaway. Luckily on the Pacific coast of Mexico, one can get a taste of both.

      In this episode of Pressure Cook Ralph finds himself still in the USA, but way out of his element. From playing bee keeper to butcher to a surprisingly adept pancake flipper, Ralph is on his toes. He discovers that the Old West is still alive and well as he drives cattle, competes in a chuck wagon cook off, and tries to avoid eating a real cowboy favorite: Prairie Oysters (AKA bull's testicles.) Did You Know: It takes about 5,300 bees to gather enough nectar to fill a one pound jar of honey. Bison has 80% less fat and 50% less Cholesterol then beef. The chuck wagon was a mobile kitchen for cowboys on the trail or at roundups.moreless

      For this episode of Pressure Cook, Ralph Pagano is sent to Iceland - one of Europe's hottest travel destinations with a very chilly name. Nowhere on Earth are the forces of nature more evident than here, and Ralph gets the full experience. Ralph swings over cliffs to collect eggs, parties with fisherman and goes from cooking for local hot spot Vox to cooking in a really hot spot: the middle of a volcano.moreless

      In this episode of Pressure Cook, Ralph Pagano will be sent to an idyllic, laid-back island paradise.

      In this episode of Pressure Cook, Ralph visits Czech Republic, the land of beer. Here he will face his biggest challenge to date as he attempts to earn a cook's living in a country not necessarily known for its cuisine. The Czech Republic gives Ralph a look at unspoiled "old" Europe. The streets are still cobblestone, the people are jolly and the architecture, complete with pristine 500 year-old churches and castles, is enticing enough to almost make Ralph forget what awaits him if he fails: two packages Olomouc, the world's nastiest smelling cheese.moreless

      There is a saying--How far can you walk into the Amazon Jungle? The answer is Manaus…past that and you're walking out. In this episode of Pressure Cook, Ralph Pagano will be sent to his most exotic and remote place yet--The Amazon Basin. Once there, Ralph will venture into the largest rainforest in the world, explore local villages, hunt for Piranhas, chop down banana plants, and will try to avoid his punishment: an Amazonian Indian favorite--Taparu, a maggot which lives in the seed of a Babassu fruit.moreless
