Bizarre Foods: Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Premieres Tuesday, August 1 at 9|8c on Travel Channel

On this episode of Bizarre Foods, I’m following in the footsteps of famed frontiersman Daniel Boone, from colonial Virginia to the fertile lands of Kentucky.

While visiting the re-constructed frontier fort at Martin’s Station, reeling in flathead catfish on the Kentucky river and learning about the ancient art of tanning from a true modern pioneer, I found Boone’s bold spirit lives on along the Cumberland Gap in the heart of Appalachia.

I ate meals reminiscent of those cooked by this country’s first settlers—fresh caught trout, wild game, marrow bones roasted in hot coals, stewed root vegetables, hearth cooked bread—all prepared without any modern conveniences. Inspired by my experience, I developed Kentucky Table spice blend, a mix of fennel, rosemary, paprika, coriander, pepper, allspice, thyme, sage, salt and chiles. You don’t need technology to create a good meal—a little seasoning and an open fire will work wonders.

Here are a few highlights from the episode:
